For any positive integer x, the 2-height of x is defined to be the greatest nonnegative
integer n such that $$2^n$$ is a factor of x. If k and m are positive integers, is the 2-height of k
greater than the 2-height of m ?
(1) k > m
(2) k/m is an even integer.

(1) k > m
(2) k/m is an even integer.

B.

2: if k/m is an even integer, k has at least one more 2 as factors than m has.

B it is... if you're wondering why (1) doesn't work, consider k=9 and m=8. k then has a 2-height of 0 and m has a 2-height of 3.
