IMO A is the answer here

statement 1, tried out a few numbers and remainder always turns out to be 1

statement 2 -clearly insufficent

Ditto by number selection and seeing the patter.

Statement 2 gives us no information as to what the value of n is. Without this, we have no clue as to the remainder.
