(1) says :

3^4 has (3+1) = 4 factors

Hence n also has 4 factors

Sufficient.

(2) says :

n = 2 * K, where k is an odd prime number

So n has (1+1) * (1+1) = 2*2 = 4 factors

Sufficient

St1 and St2 are contradicting each other. St1 says n has 5 positive factors; St2 says n has 4 positive factors. If we ignore this discrepancy, both statements are sufficient because we get a definite number of +ve factors for n.

Ans: "D"

Yes, you're right. I was in slight hurry and read 4 as 3

Hi Subhash & Fluke,

I want to get confirmation that "statements contradict" eachother - thats the reason behind posting this question. I was wondering whether I am missing something here.

Great. thanks both!

Whats the source? looks like the 2 statements contradict each other and this never happens on real GMAT.

st:1- n has 5 factors. ( unless there is a typo and it reads as 3^3)
S :2- n has 4 factors.

has to be D

from Statement 1
$$3^4$$ has 5 factors as below
1, $$3^1$$,$$3^2$$,$$3^3$$,$$3^4$$

hence sufficient

from Statement 1
n = 2 * K, where k is an odd prime number
has 4 factors as below
1, 2, k,2*k
Sufficient

hope this helps....

I am sure statement A contains a typo. Data Sufficiency questions cannot contradict each other. 3^4 should read as 3^3 in order to match the four factors from statement 2.
