(1) q is a digit that is the product of two other distinct digits.
q can be 6 (2*3) or 8 (2*4)
1 is insufficient
(2) q has only one odd factor.
This basically means that q is a power of 2 since all integers have at least one odd factor which is 1.
q can be 2, 4, 8, 16, etc
2 is insufficient
(1)+(2) q is a digit that is the product of two other distinct digits and q has only one odd factor
From the above cases, q must be 8
(1)+(2) is sufficient
Answer is (C)

(1)+(2) q is a digit that is the product of two other distinct digits and q has only one odd factor
q can still be 2, 4 or 8
(1)+(2) is insufficient
Answer is (E) 1 says two other distinct digits. Focus on other. That buys 2 and 4 from your explanation. We are left with 8. Hence, C Posted from my mobile device

q can be a (single) digit from 2 to 9.
1) q can be 2*3(=6) and 2*4(=8). NOT SUFFICIENT
2) q has only one odd factor, implying that q can be 2,4,8. NOT SUFFICIENT
1)+2) We are confident that q is 8. SUFFICIENT
FINAL ANSWER IS (C)
