I don't understand... why couldn't it be A?

1) Sufficient?
2^2 = 4.
-2^-2 = 1/2*1/2 = 1/4.

2) Insufficient. It could be 2 or -2.

Please elaborate. Thanks!

I thin it's \(|n|^{|n|}=4\)

Find an integer N.

(1) \(|n|^{|n|}=4\) --> \(n=2\) or \(n=-2\). Not sufficient.

(2) \(n^4=16\) --> \(n=2\) or \(n=-2\). Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Still the same two values of \(n\) are possible. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.
