Problem B. 4645. (September 2014)

B. 4645. Let \(\displaystyle H_{1}=\{1, 3, 5, \ldots, 2n-1\}\) and \(\displaystyle H_{2}=\{1+k, 3+k, 5+k, \ldots, 2n-1+k\}\), where \(\displaystyle n\) and \(\displaystyle k\) are any positive integers. Is there an appropriate \(\displaystyle k\) for every \(\displaystyle n\) such that the product of all elements of the set \(\displaystyle H_{1}\cup H_{2}\) is a perfect square?
