For me its clear E as we can't find the value of n from either of the statement. but, as I don't have an OA I thought to double check with you guys.

What is the value of the integer n?

(1) n!=n*(n – 1)! --> n*(n – 1)! equals to n! itself, so we have n!=n!. Useless statement.

(2) n^3 + 3n^2 + 2n is divisible by 3 --> n(n^2+3n+2)=n(n+1)(n+2): we have the product of 3 consecutive integers, which is ALWAYS divisible by 3. Useless statement.

(1)+(2) Two useless statements. Not sufficient.
