1) n is a multiple of 20
2) n + 6 is a multiple of 3


IS n = 3*5 * X,

FROM 1

N = 2^2 * 5 *Y ( Y CAN BE ANYTHING - WE ARE NOT SURE IT INCULDES A 3 AS A FACTOR OR NOT?? ).........INSUFF

FROM 2

FOR N+6 TO BE A MULTIPLE OF 3 THUS N IS IN THE FORM = 3*Z ( Z IS NOT A MUST A MULTIPLE OF 5)..........INSUFF

ADDING 1 AND 2

N IS A MULTIPLE OF 3" FROM2" AND A MULTIPLE OF 5 "FROM1" THUS IT IS A MULTIPLE OF 15.

MY ANSWER IS c

2) n + 6 is a multiple of 3

1) n=20,40,60,80 etc INSUFFI
2)n can be 3,9,27 etc hence ISUFFI

1) and 2) n is a multple of 20 and divi by 3 hence div by 15 IMO C

IMO C as well, but I think C tells us that n CANNOT be a multiple of 15. Consider multiples of 20 i.e. 20,40,60,80,100,120..where values of n satisfying stmt are 66,126,186,246..none of them are multiples of 15. Hence both stmts together are sufficient to tell us that n isNOT a multiple of 15

66,126,186 are values of n+6 and NOT n. C is still the correct answer though
