If x is a positive integer, is the remainder 0 when 3^x + 1 is divided by 10?
(1) x = 4n + 2, where n is a positive integer.
(2) x > 4

A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.
B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.
C. BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.
D. EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

A.

for 3 the units digit of power is 9 when power = 4*n + 2 where n >=0,

(+1 to this power will give us a number divisible by 10)
