The integers m and p are such that 2 < m < p and m is not a factor of p. If r is the remainder when p is divided by m, is r > 1?

(1) The greatest common factor of m and p is 2
(2) The least common multiple of m and p is 30

from i, m and p are multiples of 2 but m and p canot be 4 and 8 or so on since 4 is a factor of 8. so reminder r is atleast 2 or more. suff

from ii, m and p can be 5 and 6 or 10 or 15 respectively. in first case, r =1 and in second case r =5. so not suff...

I don't know why but I was confused as to what a remainder was

m and p respectively can be 3, 10 or 5, 6 with remiander 1 or 10, 15 with remainder 5. Only A.

Since p and m are integers, r must range from 0 to (m-1 ) ...because p is not divisible by m --> r can't be 0 ...now we have to consider the case of r=1

(1) from the statement ----> both m and p are even
if r=1 ----> p = m*k+1 (k is integer) . But m is even ---> m*k +1 is odd---> unreasonable coz p must be even ----> r CAN'T be 1 ---> r >1
--->suff.

(2) the same to others

A it is.

Pretty late to see this question, but better late than never.

From stmt1 m and p are even , and since m#p, the remainder r will be greater than 1.

For ex. Let m = 4 and p = 6 then r=2.
Let m = 8 and p = 10 then r = 2
So stmt 1 is suff.

From stmt 2 m could be 5 and p could be 6. or m could be 2 and p could be 15. So insuff.

Hence A.
