Without proper calculations i would choose B....

Thus the answer would be NO...

However done this in 5 seconds :) , so might have done a mistake somewhere....

I would say E.

1) x=4y+2
Without any info on y x may be any integer. So we can't say if 3^x+1 div by 10. Insuff.

2) x>4
x=5: 3^5+1=244 not div by 10
x=6: 3^6+1=730 div by 10
Insuff.

1+2)
y=3/4 => x=5 so not div by 10
y=1 => x=6 so div by 10
Insuff.

I'm afraid that when you choose x=6, this means 3^7....

I guess the we need to find if (3^x)+1 is divisible by 10. Otherwise it makes no sense.
