(1) x³ is an integer. If \(x=1\), then the answer is YES but if \(x=\sqrt[3]{2}\), then the answer is NO. no sufficient.

(2) ∛(x) is an integer --> \(\sqrt[3]{x}=integer\) --> raise to the third power: \(x=integer^3=integer\). Sufficient.

Answer: B.

Hope it's clear.

Yeah, its very clear . Thanks Bunuel. :)
