The tenths digit of D is 7, ---> tenths has nothing to do with hundreths, not suff
The thousandths digit of D/10 is 7, ---> the thousandths digit of D/10, is the hundreths digit of D, suff

B.

If D/10 has thousandths digit as 7. D will have the same digit as hundredths digit, which is 7

greater than 5

E.

If MNOPQR is a six digit integer, then MNOPQR/10 = MNOPQ.R
After dividing by 10, 10's digit becomes unit's, 100's digit become 10's so no.

So there is no way from given info to know about 100ths digit.

Why are looking for a integer? the Q already says that it is a decimal.

What is the OA?

They never said they were talking about numbers after the decimal. They might be asking about the numbers before or after decimal.

I think the question asked is about 10's digit and 100's digit which are part of integer part of the number, even if the number contain non.zero value after decimal point.

But if by hundredth digit they mean the position of x in 0.0x, then B should the answer.

This was a bit tough and confusing. FYI this qs is from the GMAT Prep:

The qs stem sates D is a decimal.

the first statement says that in 10d the tenth digit is 7 .. so 10*d = 10*a.bcde = ab.cde .. so in this number the tenth digit is c which is given to be 7 .. which is > 5 .. so is sufficient ...

the second statement says that the thousands digit is of d/10 is 7 ... now d/10 = a.bcde/10 = 0.abcde .. in this number the thousands digit is c .. which is given to be 7 .. which is again > 5 ... so 2nd statement is sufficient ..

Does it help...

So the question you quoted is incorrect? Should be The tenths digit of 10D is 7

The tenths digit of 10D is 7
The thousandths digit of D/10 is 7

1: 10D = 0.7xxxx
D = 0.x7xxx
so 7 > 5. suff.

2: D/10 = 0.xx7xxx
D = 0.x7xxx

suff....

D.
