I would say B

Stat 1: gives S= 2, -2, => not sufficient

Stat 2: gives S= 0, only value for which 2^|s| = |s|!= 1

hence stat 2 is alone sufficient, hence B

(2) 2^|S|=|S|!

(1) s=+-2, both are even since they are 2n, n - integer
(2) can be 0, which i also even

i vote for D.

I think i am wrong about the first statement
2^|S|=S^2
for any S= +-(2^n) is true, n is positive integer.
2^4=4^2

and +-(2^n) is even.

am i right stolyar?
