B

A: if n is odd, m is even else its odd. INSUFF

B: Can be written as m= n(n-1)+5
= odd * even + odd (N being odd or even)
= even + odd
= odd SUFF

Yes B is sufficient.

Yep B

If m & n are integers, is m odd?

1.) n+m is odd
2.) n+m = n^2 +5

I) one is odd one is even, could be either INS
II) if n is odd n^2 = odd, then it would be odd+odd = even
if n is even then n^2 = even so it would be even + odd = odd

n must be even and m must be odd

SUFF

B

Statement 1:
m = odd, only if n = even INSUFF

Statement 2:
n+m = n*n +5

If n = odd, then n+m = even, which makes m = odd
If n = even, then n+m = odd, which makes m = odd SUFF

Yes - B is sufficient. Try picking numbers. M cannot be even.

n+m=n^2+5 tells you that m& n are either both odd or one is odd or even. regardless m will be odd.
