St1:
Factors of 56 = 1 ,2, 4, 7 ,8 ,14,28,56
Only odd number are 1 , 7 So 1 is not suff.

St2:14 is a factor of 2n

n=1 , 14 is factor of 14
n=2 , 14 is factor of 28
n=3 , 14 is factor of 42
n=7 , 14 is factor of 84

so b is not suff. (1,3,7)

more over A + B:(1,7)
not sufficient

1) answers since 7 is the only odd factor
2)does not answer since n can be any multiple of 14 or 7

hence IMO A

For me Only 1st is suffiecent.
If n is odd integer graeter than 1 and n is factor of 56 than only value of n satisfy is 7.

2nd Equation, lets assume n = 21 than 2n = 42 and 14 is a factpor of 42.
But n=21 is not a prime number. So 2nd doesnot conclude the question.

1) n is a factor of 56

from 1

56 = 2^2*7......the only odd > 1 in this factorisation is 7........suff

from 2

2n = 14 thus n is in the form 7x , we have no idea about x .........insuff

Agree with A.

1) answers since 7 and 1 are the only odd factors and n > 1. so suff.
2) does not answer since n can be any multiple of 14 and also of 7
