B is enough. no matter what is the value of the odd interger, the reminder is 1 when this odd integer is divided by 2.

Question is n even!

n/5 remainder is odd => n = a*5 + b for a=odd n is even for a=even n is odd or in other ex...for 8 and 13 both remainder is odd
so insuff
n/10 remainder is odd => n = a*10 + b, b is odd, a*10 is even so a*10+b is odd so n is not even! Suff.

Why isn't the answer D? Either choice gives you a remainder of 1 when you divide the remainders in (1) and (2) by 2.
