My answer is B ,

(1) say m = 7 , and n= 14 , GCD = 7
m = 7 and n = 13 GCD = 1
not sure

(2)


m = 2 , n = 3 GCD is 1
m = 5 , n = 6 GCD is 1

for any two consecutive numbers GCD is 1

I have answer B too.

st.1
m = 3 and n = 9 --> GCD = 3
m = 3 and n = 8 --> GCD = 1
Not sufficient

st.2
m = 5 and n = 6 --> GCD = 1
m = 14 and n = 15 --> GCD = 1
m = 1 and n = 2 --> GCD = 1
Sufficient

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Regards,

Alex
