(1) 16 * x is integer.
(2) 8 * x is integer.

let x= 0.abc.....
Consider (2) first: since 0<x<1 and 8*x is integer -----> 8*x>=1 ( 8*x can be 0 coz x>0 )
then, we have 1=< 8*x <10*x = a.bc.... ---->a can't be 0 ---->suff

(1) consider 16*x=1 ( the smallest one) ...x=0.0625
0.5*16 = 8 ---> a can be nonzero and zero -->insuff.

B it is.

I am also speechless here!

Nice job, laxie!

The OA is (B).
