(1) 2z is not a factor of 8
z could be 2, 3,6,7
Insuff

(2) 3z/4 is a factor of 6
This means 3z/4 is an even integer.
Even if 3z/4 is an integer, z has to be a MULTIPLE of 4
So z is even
Sufficient

(1) 2z is NOT a factor of 8. Now 8 has only 4 factors: 1, 2, 4, 8. So 2z should be none of these four, hence z could be any integer apart from 1, 2, 4. But still z could take multiple values like 6, 8, 3, 7.. and thus could be either odd or even. So cant say. Insufficient.

(2) 3z/4 is a factor of 6. Now factors of 6 are also four: 1, 2, 3, 6.
If 3z/4 = 1, then z is NOT an integer, which contradicts given data. so rejected
If 3z/4 = 2, then again z is NOT an integer, so rejected
If 3z/4 = 3, then z=4, which is even
If 3z/4 = 6, then z=8, which is even

So basis this statement z can take 2 integer values - 4 and 8 - both of which are even. So z is even. Sufficient.

Hence B answer
