    Is n and integer?

    n3 is an integer
    3\n is an integer


    Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient
    Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient
    BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient
    EACH statement ALONE is sufficient
    Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

    the fist statement says that 3*n is a integer ... there are 2 possiblities first n is an integer = 6 .. in which case 3*n is an intger .. second n is of the form a/3 ( a is an integer ) .. in which case again 3*n is an integer .. so first is insufficient ...

    the second statement says 3/n is an integer .. there are again 2 possiblities .. first n=1 in which case n is an intger and so is 3/n .. second n is of the form 3/b (b is an integer ) .. in which case 3/n = 3/(3/b) = b an intger .. so again there is no defnite value for n .. so insufficient

    now combibng both the cases .. we can see that n is an intger .. so the answer is C

    The ans is E
    bcos lets take 1/3 as n both statements r satisfied

    lets take 3 as n again both statements r satisfied

    hence E

    Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.
    1 is not sufficient
    Take the case of 3n = 6 then n=2 ,n integer
    take the case of 3n=7 then n=7/3 , a non integer

    2 is not sufficient
    take the case when 3/n=1 then n=3,integer
    take the case when 3/n =2 then n=3/2, a non integer

    now combining both

    Consider n=1/3, a non integer, it satisfies both I and II
    Consider n=1, an integer , it satisfies both I and II

    So, n can be an integer or a non integer

    So E it is !!!
