I pick C.

Seems like only N=3 or (-3) works...
This is the only prime that is divisible by 3... And YES, it is odd.

I would go with a B
2N has as many positive divisors as N.
Implies N is an odd multiple of 3.

Ok check for
2 : 1,2 ; 4 : 1,2,4 ; 8 : 1,2,4,8
3 : 1,3 ; 6 : 1,2,3,6 ; 12 : 1,2,3,4,6,12
9 : 1,3,9 ; 18: 1,2,3,6,9,18 ; 36 : 1,2,3,4,6,9,18,36

Clearly the pattern is seen

Agree.
B it is.

It also has nothing to do with primes.. :oops:

It is odd by B alone, but not necessarily mutliple of 3. Say N = 5. Multiples = 1,5. 2N = 10. Multiples = 1, 2, 5, 10.

...thinking of a different way rather than trial and error.

Statement 2:

Either N is odd (=2k+1) then 2N has obviously twice as much divisors as N
or N is even (=2k) and then 2N has twice as much factors as N.

B is the answer

I am nto sure if N is 4 and 2N is 8, then this does not hold true.
So, restricitng to be factor of 3 along with statement B, should give C as answer.

Well....
lets try n=6
n is even and 2(6) has twice the factors of 6
try n=3
n is odd and 2(3) has twice the factors of 3
so i think the ans.. should be E.
