(1) 2x + 5 is odd.
(2) x + 6 is odd.

Statement 1:

2x + 5 = odd

2x = odd - 5

2x = odd - odd

2x = even

x = even / odd.

NOT sufficient.

Statement 2:

x + 6 = odd

x = odd - 6.

x = odd - even.

x = odd.

Target question :

x + 1

odd + odd = even.

So, x + 1 is not an odd integer.

Sufficient .

#1
x=1,2,3,
in sufficient
#2
x has to be odd
so x+1 is not odd
IMO B
