If s is a two-digit number (so s = qp with q and p digits), what is the last digit p of s?

(1) The number 3s is a three-digit number whose last digit is p
(2) The digit p is less than 7

Explanation:

1*3=3
2*3=6
3*3=9
4*3=2
5*3=5 (3p=p)
6*3=8
7*3=1
8*3=4
9*3=7

but we forgot 0

0*3=0

so we cannot conclude whether is 0 or 5....(E)

The right answer, but the wrong explanation...the question was: what is the last digit p of s?....

(1) 0 and 5
(2) doesn't eliminate one of those two possible solutions...

So ..E

Why are you guys only conseding the digit 5. Why not 0. 0 and 5 are the digits which will be same it multiplied by 3, but then as Subhangi said there will be a lot of numbers 40,50.....,45,55,65 etc.
