Very nice question and answer is indeed "B". I picked "D" initially.

Explanation, The whole question boils down to --> n/m = integer or not. We know, 3<m<13.
1. Given, 3n/m= integer, it CAN NOT be refered that n/m is interger because 3<m<13.
Check this - if n=14 and m=6. This condition is invalid. Hence insuff.

2. Given, 13n/m= integer, it CAN be refered that n/m is interger because m<13 & m is PRIME number.
Hence suff.

Cheers.
