(1) 8k is divisible by 16
(2) 9k is divisible by 12

Statement 1: 8k is divisible by 16
In this case, k should have a power of 2, hence it has to be divisible by 2, but we are not sure if it will be divisible by 4
INSUFFICIENT

Statement 2: 9k is divisible by 12
For 9k to be divisible by 12, k should have a power of 3 and a power of 4. Hence it has to be a multiple of 4
SUFFICIENT

Correct Option: B

Is the integer k divisible by 4 ?

(1) 8k is divisible by 16.

8k/16 = k/2. We are not certain whether k can be divisible by another 2. Not Sufficient.

(2) 9k is divisible by 12.

9k/12 = 3k/4. We know that k must be divisible by 4 because the constant 3 is reduced to its lowest factor, and we know the first expression is an integer.
