E) A/B = 9


I'll solve this by showing counterexamples for four of the answer ----
(A) AB = 45 or 63 or 27
(B) AB = 33 or 19
(C) 90
(D) impossible
(E) AB = 91

(D) is impossible because 09 is not a valid two digit number --- if there's a zero in the ten's place, that's just 9, a single digit number. Therefore, no valid two digit number would satisfy (D).

Let me know if anyone reading this has questions on anything I have said.

Mike :-)
