1. When X/2Y, the remainder is 4.

>> Insuff.
>> Assume X = 28 and Y = 3 => Remainder of X/2Y = 4. But X/Y = 1
>> Assume X = 28 and Y = 4 => Remainder of X/2Y = 4. But X/Y = 0

2. When X+Y is divided by Y, the remainder is 4

>> Suff.
>> (x+y)/y => x/y + y/y
>> y evenly divides itself. Hence X/Y remainder is 4.

X/Y = 3

(X+Y)/Y = 4;

X/Y + 1 = 4;

Ans:X/Y = 3

I see how 1 is insufficient but can someone explain (again) how 2 is sufficient?

(x+y)/y = R4

This statement simplified is x/y + y/y = R4

Now where do we go from here?

That is the solution.. y/y leaves no reminder... and then x/y leaves 4.... which is exactly what the stem was asking.

Duh...that's why I'm not doing too well on DS. When I think the question is tricking me, it isn't. When I think the question is straightforward, it tricks me. Urghh :evil:

OA is B. OE is a full page long, but Suhagar summarized it pretty well. :P
