How does statement 2 work out?

Plus in:

x = 15, therefore according to statement II x/12 = 1 R 3 and x/6 = 2 R 3
x = 18, therefore according to statement II x/12 = 1 R 6 and x/6 = 3 R 0

Therefore, as you change x, the remainder of x/6 does NOT remain consistent with the remainder of x/12. Isn't the answer A (Statement I alone is suffient).

Please explain why statement II is sufficient on its own.

Q. R(x/6) = ?
S1. R(x/2) = 1
R(x/3) = 0
x = 3*(2n+1) = 6n+3
R(x/6) = R((6n+3)/6) = 3
Sufficient
S2. R(x/12) = 3
x = 12n+3
R(x/6) = R((12n+3)/6) = 3
Sufficient

Stuart,

Why did you pick "3" for statement 2?

Plug in numbers for each statement and you will find that both statement are sufficient independently.
