1) is not sufficient, because the k can be 37 or 42, which does not provide a unique answer.

Whereas:
2) consider the followings:
If the unit digit is less then 5,
--> k's tens digit is 4
if the unit digit is more than 5,
--> k's tens digit is 3

Therefore condition 2) is sufficient, because it restricts the tens digit to be 3 only.
