NEW question from GMAT® Quantitative Review 2019


(DS01104)



Statement 1:

p^2 + 1 = odd

P has to be even in this case. odd + odd = even but even + odd = odd.

Sufficient.

Statement 2:

p + 2 = even

Sufficient.

Odd + 2 = odd

even + 2 = even .

The best answer is D.

(1) The integer p^2 + 1 is odd.
For p^2 + 1 to be odd, p^2 must be even, and an square of even integer is always even
Sufficient

(2) The integer p + 2 is even.
For p + 2 to be even, p must always be even, for 2 is anyway even
Sufficient

Hence, D.
