Hi,
As far as i understand your question you want to see if A is incorrect.
If n=sqrt2 then n^2=2 and n is NOT an integer . If n=2 then n^2=4 and n IS an integer
hope it helps

1) if n^2 is an integer: for example n^2 = 3 -> n = sqrt(3) - not an integer; n^2 = 4 -> n = 2 - integer -> insufficient
2) sqrt(n) is an integer -> n = sqrt(n)*sqrt(n) = integer -> sufficient -> B

People gotta start using the math functions on here so the problems make sense.

n2 = n * 2....totally different than $$n^2$$
