m=n-4 ;)

1) insuff.
5+n = mult. of 3 => n may be 1, 4, 7. As we see that m=n-4 then n can be 4 or 7.
2)suff.
15+m=mult of 9. So m can be only 3 and n becomes 7.

thanks, maliyeci
that's a good explanation :) 1 kudo for you :)
I made a mistake when finding out from 1 (n=4 or 7) and corresponding m=0 or 3.
I go to (2) and find out m=3
so I come to conclusion that it needs both to get the answer. This is how I was trapped by DS questions :)
