Wait, why can't (2) also give you the answer?

For example:
n = 1, (n^2 - 1) % 8 = 0
n = 3, (n^2 - 1) % 8 = 8 % 8 = 0
n = 5, (n^2 - 1) % 8 = 24 % 8 = 0
n = 7, (n^2 - 1) % 8 = 48 % 8 = 0
n = 9, (n^2 - 1) % 8 = 80 % 8 = 0

Let's discuss (2):
n┬▓–1=(n+1)(n-1)
n is odd, so (n+1) and (n-1) are consequtive even integers, their produst is evenly divisible by 8

Sorry, D is right :oops: :oops: :oops:
