On the GMAT, would the number 7 be considered a multiple of the number 3.5?
No, divisors and multiples refer to integers only. So the phrase "n is a multiple of m/2" implies that m/2 is an integer.

Wrong answer, suppose n = 6, a = 1, m = 9.

The values do not fit in any statement.

n = 2m × k (given) , if k = 1 and m = 2, then n = 4. m is NOT divisible by m. So, it is not sufficient as well.

Based on statement (2) that is correct.

It's not clear what you meant, but what the question asks us is:
Quote:
… is n²ª a multiple of mª?
The proposed values make it "… is 4²ª a multiple of 2ª?"

And 4²ª is indeed a multiple of 2ª, so the proposed values do not prove statement (2) to be insufficient.

I think statement 2 is insufficient as well: if 2m is divisor of n then let's say that m = n = 3 --> 6/3 = 2 let's say, in addition, that a = 1 then 3 is not divisor of 9 (3²).

Statement (2) tells us that n is a multiple 2m. In other words n is divisible by 2m.
If m = n = 3, then n = 3 is NOT divisible by 2m = 6.
