D.

If x is odd, then x^3 is odd. Only odd*odd=odd
(1) This one you know that sqrt(x) is odd. Only odd values of x will give its sqrt odd. SUFFICIENT

(2) x is odd, then yes. SUFFICIENT.

do we know x is an integer?


using statement 1:
since 3*sqrt x is an odd integer => sqrt x is odd integer
=> x is odd integer

using statement 2 : x is an odd integer

So, using either of the statements, we can deduce that x is an odd integer.
So, x^3 has to be odd integer.

Easy D here.

2 Fistail: there is clear statement everywhere, that X should be integer, so it couldn't be any fractions in this question.
