In the fraction x/y, where x and y are positive integers, what is the value of y?

(1) The least common denominator of x/y and 1/3 is 6 --> LCM of y and 3 is is 6 --> y=2 or y=6. Not sufficient.

(2) x = 1 --> no info about y. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) y still can be 2 or 6. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.
