(1) p is a multiple of 10 (2) p is a multiple of 5 OA E Source: Veritas Prep Question: Is the positive integer p a multiple of 50? Let's take each statement one by one. (1) p is a multiple of 10. Case 1: If p = 50, the answer is Yes. Case 2: If p = 10, the answer is No. No unique answer. Insufficient. (2) p is a multiple of 5. Case 1: If p = 50, the answer is Yes. Case 2: If p = 10, the answer is No. No unique answer. Insufficient. (1) and (2) together Both the cases discussed above are applicable here, too. Insufficient. The correct answer: E Hope this helps! -Jay _________________ Manhattan Review GMAT Prep Locations: Manhattan Review Warangal | Hyderabad | GRE Prep Mumbai | Visakhapatnam GRE Coaching | and many more...

(1) p is a multiple of 10 (2) p is a multiple of 5 Any integer that is a multiple 10 is also a multiple of 5. Implication: Any integer that satisfies Statement 1 will also satisfy Statement 2. Both statements are satisfied by the following cases: Case 1: p=10, which is a multiple of 10 (and thus is also a multiple of 5) In this case, p is NOT a multiple of 50. Case 2: p=50, which is a multiple of 10 (and thus is also a multiple of 5) In this case, p IS a multiple of 50. Since the answer to the question stem is NO in Case 1 but YES in Case 2, the two statements combined are INSUFFICIENT. The correct answer is E. _________________ Mitch Hunt Private Tutor for the GMAT and GRE GMATGuruNY@gmail.com If you find one of my posts helpful, please take a moment to click on the "UPVOTE" icon.
