B.

1. number is divisible by 3 - 9 or 6 INSUFF
2. The factors of an odd number are always odd, which means that if the number is mulitplied by 2 there will be double the number of factors
if a number n has 3 odd factors - 1, a and n then 2n will have 1, 2, a, 2a, n ,2n - double the number. an even number on the other hand will have atleast 1 less than the number of factors. SUFF

Or you could plug in a few numbers and get a general trend

B....

1) insuff - could be 6 which is even

2) Suff - 2(n) set N = 2, compares 2 div by 1 and 2 to 4 div by 4, 2, 1 - only an addition of 1 divisibility. Set N = 3 - suff.

Concur with (B). Try picking 15 and then break down its prime factors.

15 = 4 factors (1,3,5,15)
30= 8 factors (1,2,3,5,6,10,15,30)

works with other obscure odd numbers as well.
