D for sure

the only way to get a odd factorial is with 1!=1
and the only "special" factorial to consider would be 0! = 0

In the first statement we had to get E=Q
0! -> (0+0)! = 0 -> EVEN
1! -> (1!+1!)! = 2! -> EVEN

so statement 1 is sufficient

In the second statement it's even anyway (any factorial number superior to 1 will be even as it will be multiply by 2)

so statement 2 is sufficient

Answer is D

unless i am crazy you couldn't have factorials without using integers right?

Based on that assumption i throw in for D too.


You could unless the word 'factorial' is associated with the word 'integer' or with an integer number, which is the case in most problems.

I think the factorial sign outside the bracket makes the difference.

I'll go with D

good discussion folks!
