(1) k and p are distinct and positive.
(2) k = 1 and |p|>1.


On simplying the equation we get is k>= (2/p) ?

(1) k and p are distinct and positive. - Sufficient

k=1 and p=2. Is k>= (2/p) ? - Yes
k=3 and p=1. Is k>= (2/p) ? - Yes

Note : The condition fails only for k=p=1. This cannot be the case as the numbers are distinct.

(2) k = 1 and |p|>1 - Sufficient

1>= (2/p). p can vary from [- infinity, 2] and [2, infinity]. Substituting the limits we can see this statement is also sufficient.

Hence D.

Cheers!
