If K is a multiple of 29, is K∙Y a multiple of 174?

Is ky a multiple of 174 = 2*3*29? We know that k is a multiple of 29, hence in order ky to be a multiple of 2*3*29, we need any of them to contain 2 and 3.

(1) Y is a multiple of 27 --> y is a multiple of 3. We need 2. Not sufficient.

(2) K is divisible by 2 without a remainder --> k is a multiple of 2 (even). We need 3. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Sufficient.

Answer: C.
