Statement 1: x is divisible by 8

For x to be divisible by 24, it must be divisible by 8 as well as 3. However, we do not know if x is also divisible by 3 too. Insufficient.

Statement 2: x is divisible by 6

For x to be divisible by 24, it must be divisible by 6 as well as 4. However, we do not know if x is also divisible by 4 too. Insufficient.

Statement 1 & 2:

The LCM of 8 and 6 is 24, thus x is divisible by 24. Sufficient.

The correct answer: C

Hope this helps!
