if we have more information about p then we can have factors of n too.

let p be 3
let p be 5
let p be 7
if we take hcf of the solutions 3 results
that is hcf(8,24,48)=8
therfore 8 is the highest no. divisible by p^2-1
still have doubt try two more casees and find hcf of all 5 numbers the result will be 8
