Is x an integer ?

(1) (3x+4) ( x+2) = 0 --> $$x=-\frac{4}{3}$$, so not an integer or $$x=-2=integer$$. Not sufficient.

(2) x^2 is an even integer. If $$x=2$$, the answer is YES but if $$x=\sqrt{2}$$, then the answer is NO. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Since if $$x=-\frac{4}{3}$$, then $$x^2$$ won't be an even integer, then $$x$$ must be -2, thus integer. Sufficient.

Hope it's clear.
