n is a PRIME number..
1) n^2+n=6...
Either $$n^2+n=6.........n(n+1)=3*2$$, so n=2..
Or $$n^2+n=6........n^2+n-6=0........n^2+3n-2n-6=0.......(n+3)(n-2)=0$$
So n can be -3 or 2.... But n is prime, so n=2
Sufficient

2) 4n is a single digit even number.
So 4n<10........n<2.5
n can be 1 or 2..
Since n is prime, so n is 2
Suff

It's given in the question that n is a prime number. we have to find out value of n.

statement 1: n^2 + n = 6

n(n+1)=6

n and n+1 are consecutive number. only n equals to 2 meet the equation true. thus , n = 2 which is a prime.

statement 2: 4n is a single digit even number. It means that 4n< 10 . so n<2.5. only prime below 2.5 is 2 . thus, statement 2 is sufficient.
