This question is strange... it contradicts itself. Your stem states that n is perfect square. However, (2) tells you that n has exactly 4 positive factors. Any perfect square will have an odd number of factors. So (2) contradicts the stem

(1) INSUFF. k could be 3, 5, 7...

Yeah, I came to the same conclusion. In the practice test, the explanation to this problem states: "All odd square primes have exactly 4 factors..."

Seems to be an error in the question.
