(1) The number 3s is a three-digit number whose last digit is p
=> q>3 & p is either 0 or 1 or 5.


(2) The digit p is less than 7
=> p can be 1, 2.....6

(1)&(2) => p could be either 0 or 1 or 5.

Hence, E.

"E" for me.

Speedo, p can't be 1, it can only be 0 or 5. :)

E.

But, Can some one explain why for St.1, p should be 0 or 5?.
Is it 3*S(a 2 digit number) or the digit 3 precedes S?.

clearly E
At first I've made the same mistake than Speedo so it's better to take time because you always make that kind of stupid error when you read too fast... :?

prep_gmat, the statement 1 just gives us 2 potential numbers : 0 and 5
ex : 10*3 = 30 (last digit of 3S = P = 0)
ex : 15*3 = 45 (last digit of 3S = P = 5)

you can find it fast :

0*3=0
1*3=3
2*3=6
3*3=9
4*3=12
5*3=15
6*3=18
7*3=21
8*3=24
9*3=27

just 2 numbers have the same last digit after being multiplied by 3, number 0 and number 5.

Yes, it must be 0 or 5 for St.1. My mind had gone a walk about...:-)
