i would also go with b
since k is not divisible by any odd number greater than 1, k has to be a multiple of 2 (since it is given it is greater than 1)
it cannot be D as u can have a number e.g 2^6 * 3 which will be divisible by 2^6 but it cannot be equal to 2^r as it contains an odd number.
pls confirm the ans

Hi Silivest,
I agree with u & RI, the ans should be B
stmt 1 : k= 2^10, k =2^5*7 INSUFF
stmt 2 : k is not divisible by any other odd nos greater than 1
In that case it cannot have any prime factor other than 2, coz all others are odd
hence k is either 2, or a power of 2, coz it cannot have any other prime factor
SUFF
B
