GMAT math test - number properties 3 qn 10 [#permalink] New post 26 Oct 2009, 20:07
How many divisors does positive integer N has got

1)The difference between the largest and the smallest divisor of N is 21
2) N+1 has 2 divisors
OA is A.

Take statement 1, smalles divisor of any number is 1, largest divisor is 22 if the difference is 21.
Take N = 44, it has got 1,2,4,11 and 22, now take 22, it has got 1,2,11 & 22. so A is not sufficient

Take statement 2, N+1 has 2 divisors, meaning N+1 is a prime number hence not sufficient

combining A & B also is not sufficient, hence correct choice is E.

Please advise with explanation

Please note that 44's largest divisor is 44, not 22 as you stated. So, 44 can't be used as a proof for S1 insufficiency.
