Isnt the set infinite?

1. There is only one pair of consecutive odd integers where exactly one is negative: -1 and 1. Sufficient.
2. Both integers can be positive or one is positive and one is negative. There are an infinite amount of positive pairs of odd integers. Insufficient.

Answer: A

S1: when exactly one is negative other is positive and as they are consecutive so they are -1 and 1 so sufficient
