I think the answer is C.

1. 4x^2 is an integer.
X=1 and X=1/2 both satisfy this condition. So INSUFF

2. sqrt(4x)is an integer.
X=1 and X=1/4 both satisfy this condition. So INSUFF.

Take 1 and 2 together. 2 clearly rules on the possibility that X is negative. So X can only be postive

sqrt(4x) is integer => Either X can be 1/4 or X must be some perfect square like 1,4,9,16,25,36 etc etc.
But 4x^2 cannot be an integer if X is 1/4.
So the only possible values for X are perfect suqares like 1,4,9,16,25 etc which are all integers..

What is the OA?
