1) is not sufficient (consider n = sqrt(2))

2) sqrt(n) is an integer

so n = integer^2

so n = integer

sufficient

You've picked the right answer. But, I dont understand the rationale for statement 1.

Statement 1 says n^2 = integer. To test this statement, you'd have to pick a value that satisfies the condition, correct. For eg you cannot select 2, 3, or 5 as n since they will not be an integer. Makes sense?
