There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

(1) is not sufficient. Note: 120=2*2*2*3*5, for example 23*24*25*26 is a multiple of 120, or 120*121*122*123.
(2) is sufficient.
We know that the last digits of the four numbers must be either 1, 2, 3 and 4 (1+2+3+4=10) or 6, 7, 8, 9 , these numbers constructed in that way
(i. e. k*10+1, k*10+2, K*10+3, k*10+4, k integer)
are not divisible by 5 (analogously for 6, 7, 8, 9). Hence, We know that these numbers cannot be multiples of 120.

Therefore, B is the correct answer.

I have a feeling it should be (C), but can prove this completely

Let's write this as n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3) divisible by 120

Stem1. Let's pick 1,2,3,4 as for consecutive integers. Their product is 24, not divisible by 120.

On the other hand, 2*3*4*5 is divisible by 120.

/NOT SUFF/

Stem2. Pick the same 1,2,3,4 because their sum is equal to 10. Again, NOT SUFF

I think when you combine two statements, it should be enough to prove that the product is NOT divisible by 120, but I don't want to spend my time on it right now

I was going with E as I couldn't get anywhere with the Statement 2.

Thanks/

It’s been a long time, since I posted. A busy schedule at office and the GMAT preparation, fully tied up with all my free hours. Anyways, now I’m back...

Ah yes. Funemployment. The time between when you quit your job and when you start your MBA. The promised land that many MBA applicants seek. The break that every...
