Statement 1 tells that either a-7 or b-7 or c-7 is 0. It does not tells us for sure if a-7 is 0 or not.

Statement 2 tells us that b and c both are non zero but it does not tells us what is a. It also tells us that b and c are one of 1,2,3,6,9,18.

Combining the two, we know that b and c are not equal to 7. a-7 has to be 0 and thus a = 7
