E.

Stmnt 1: k=16, k=12. Both are divisible by 4 but may or may not be square of a integer. Not sufficient.
Stmnt 2: k=210=2*3*5*7 which is not square. k=210*210 which is square. Not sufficient.

if (1) & (2), k is divisible by 4 and k is divisible by exactly 4 different prime numbers.

we know that only 2 is an even prime number so k can't be divisible by 4, at least 2 is suff. So we can't determine k, does it mean k is not the square of an integer => C?????

Isn't the question somewhat ambiguous? "exactly 4 different prime numbers" doesn't mean "exactly 4 different factors". Lets wait for the OA.
