If p can be expressed as the product of two integers, each being greater than 1, then p necessarily has to be a composite number (a non prime).

1 Says p is 32, 33, 34, 35 or 36. This is a set of composite numbers, so no matter what, p can be expressed as a product of two integers, each > 1. Hence sufficient.

2. Says p is odd. This does not provide us information if that odd number is prime or not. Hence this is insufficient.

Therefore, (A).
