given Z^n = 1

stmt 1 : n is non integer so n < 0 or n >0

so z = 1 and n= 1 then z^n = 1
or z = -1 and n= 2 then z^n =1 .so Insufficient

Stmt 2:
z > 0 then for z any value and n=0 then Z^n =1.So in sufficient.

Combining both Z>0 and n is a non intger then yes Z =1 .

IMO it should be B.
Here possible values of Z are -1,0,1.

1) n is non-zero, we dont know anything about Z. - not sufficient
2) Z>0. which means Z=1. 1^n is always 1. - sufficient.

What is OA?
