Given k,j +ve integers,
r=? if k = jxm + r

S1: Given k =jm+5

If k = 10, j = 5, then
k = 5x1 + 5, but remainder is zero.
If k = 12, j = 7 then
k = 7x1 + 5 remainder is 5.
Not sufficient.

S2: j > 5, Not sufficient.

S1 & S2:
k = jm+5, j>5
If j > 5, then remainder is always < divisor i.e. 5

Sufficient.

(2) j > 5

C by definiton from one remainder could be 5 if only j> 5 because if not we will be able to devide 5 by J one more time and thus the remainder wont be fife
