I feel the answer is B. But a frnd of mine who took the test, says it is C.

Can anyone correct me/him, by solving the above.

1 is not suff. n = 3 or n = -5,

2 is sufficient: n = 3(because n >= 0, otherwise |(n+2)^n| < 1 and if n >=0, (n+2)^n is strictly monotoneous and increasing function of n and there is only 1 n, such that (n+2)^n = 125).

Where did you find it? What's the probability of encountering such question on actual GMAT? I've not seen such questions on my GMAT...

HI

A= not sufficient...

B = the oply number that agrees to the given Equation and gives the na s as = 125 is three(3)...

any other number would not satisfy the above condition... I guess this sort of probs have to solevd by inserting the numbers themselves.

hope that helps!

Have fun :-D
