Is q^2 an odd integer?

(1) q is an odd integer.
(2) q^4 is an odd integer.

How come the answer will be A? For me it should be straight D or I am reading something wrong.

Is q^2 an odd integer?

Notice that we are not told that q is an integer.

(1) q is an odd integer --> q^2 is odd. Sufficient.

(2) q^4 is an odd integer --> if q=odd then the answer would be YES, but if q=\sqrt[4]{3} then the answer would be NO, since q^2=\sqrt{3} is not an integer at all. Not sufficient.

Answer: A.

Hope it's clear.

Hi Bunuel,

q^4 is an odd integer --> if q=odd then the answer would be YES, but if q=\sqrt{3} then the answer would be NO, since \sqrt{3} is not an integer at all. Not sufficient.

My Question is if Q is equal to root 3 then Q square will be 3 which is odd. Which makes it sufficient to answer that Q square will be odd.

Please clarify.

There was a formatting error, it should be: " if q=\sqrt[4]{3} then the answer would be NO, since q^2=\sqrt{3} is not an integer at all".
