Okay, here goes...
I guess you should have arrived at the equation given in the solution given at TIME's website... (n+4)(n-4)^2
Now, in the inequality above, since n is a positive integer (given in the question), (n+4) will always be positive, i.e. >0.
And, (n-4)^2 cannot be negative, i.e.
Now the only possible solution for the above inequality is being equal to zero. For that (n-4)=0, which implies n=4.  OVERRIDE the "Luck Factor". Write a comment

Write a comment... CAn any temme %ile for dese scores:

Sec 1 -> 14
Sec 2 -> 38
Why do we fall??? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up again. Write a comment

Ahh yes, got it. Don't know why I assumed all to be 90 degrees. Thanks for your help and for the drawing of course.

got it... couldn't imagine that figure at first...
well Data Sufficiency does that...we have to look at all possible conditions. I always skip the DS questions for trying at last......

try it, it definitely is possible. Draw a 90 degree angle. From one of the vertices draw a 30 degree and then drop a perpendicular from the original angle to the new line. It is possible.
just drew a crude drawing for you...
got it...:) couldn't imagine that figure at first...:D

Is that possible? If two opposite sides of any quadrilateral are 90 deg each, the other two have to be 90. Try drawing a quadrilateral on a piece of paper with two 'OPPOSITE ANGLES' as 90 and the other two not 90 ( like (120,60), (150,30)). I don't think its possible.

you did not get my point. Sum of the opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral is 180. So, if one angle is 90 degree, the angle opposite it is 90 degree. But it does not say anything about the other two angles, all we know is that their sum is 180. It can be (120,60),(150,30) or any other pair, never it has been mentioned they are equal.

Exactly my point! When any angle of a cyclic quadrilateral is 90 degrees, all become 90 right? Since opp sides of a cyclic quadrilateral add up to 180 degrees. And adjacent sides are given equal, not opposite sides, which makes it a square. If opposite sides were equal, it would have been a Rectangle or a square.
