a) Any prime number has exactly two divisors ( Insufficient )
b) Sufficient
2 has divisors 2 and 1 and the difference between them is 1

Anand,

shouldn't the answer be E?

difference between any two of the distincive fators is odd
10 has factors 1 and 5 and difference is 4 which is not odd

1. n has exactly 2 positive factors

2. the difference of any two distict positive factors of n is odd

(1) => n is prime. Insufficient.
(2) => it should have one even factor, which is 2, and one more which should be only 1, because other ways we will not have the difference of ANY two factors odd. (statement 1 can be derived from 2). So the only integer is 2. Sufficient.

B is the answer.
