As the question is written, it has many correct answers. Surely the letters in the question are meant to be exponents - the question only makes sense if it reads:

"If $$2^n$$ is a divisor of 1680 and $$2^m$$ is not a divisor of 1680, where $$m = n + 1$$, what is the value of $$n$$"

though there are still problems with the wording (among them, the question needs to tell you that n is an integer).

Since 1680 = 16*105 = (2^4)(105), we can divide 1680 by 2^4 but not by 2^5, so the answer to what I assume is the intended question is 4. What is the source?
