A. j and k are both even j=3 and k=9

B. j=k j=3 and k=9

C. If j is even, k is even must be true. If j is even, j^2 must be even. And k must be even to \((j^2)/k\) be odd. Ex: j=10 and k=20

D. j is divisible by k j=3 and k=9

E. j^2>k j=3 and k=9

The question states that j^2 / k is odd, therefore it can be written that j^2 = ka, where a is odd. Now there are two cases:

Case I: If both are odd, j = 9 and k = 3, then j^2 / k = 9^2 / = 27, is odd.
Case II: If both are even , j = 6 and k = 4, then j^2 / k = 6^2 / 4 = 9, is odd.

To determine, which option must be true, then option C is correct.
