Statement 1: 2 is divisor of N but 4 (2^2)Not. Hence j =1 but we know nothing about k
If k=1 N =6
If k=2 N =18
Not sufficient
Statement 2:
36= (2*3)^2
24= 2^3* 3^1
N is a divisor of 36 but not of 24.
So N could be 9, 18 or 36.
Not sufficient
Combining:
It has to be a multiple of 2 but not 4.
Only option is 18=2x9.
Sufficient
