What is the probability of selecting a clean number from a set of integers containing all multiples of 3 between 1 and 99, inclusive?

1. A clean number is an integer divisible by only 2 factors, one of which is greater than 2.
2. A clean number must be odd.

A? Because statement one is pretty much telling us that the number is a prime. You dont need statement 2 because all primes are odd.

A for me!

set = {3,6,9,12,...96,99}

1) We know only prime #'s have just two factors - 1 and the number itself.
We also know from the set that 3 is the only prime in it and of course 3 is > 2
SUFF => AD

2) every other number in the set is odd.
NOT SUFF => A

In case wont be the probability of selecting a clean number be 1/2.

In case 2 u mean?
If that's what your asking, case

2. A clean number must be odd.

This says it will be odd, but in this case does not fully define a "clean number"

I guess the question is a little vague and confusing

1. A clean number is an integer divisible by only 2 factors, one of which is greater than 2.
2. A clean number must be odd.


My answer is D.

1. Clean number is defined as a prime number here. Sufficient.
2. Clean number is defined as an odd number here. Sufficient.

As far as I know, if the answer to a DS question is D, both 1) and 2) must yield the same value...

TeHCM, technically, you are right, but i doubt ETS would ever create such a question...
Do correct me if i'm wrong

You are right about statement 1, it defines what a clean number is. Please look carefully at statement 2 though, it doesnt define a clean number as odd, it says a clean number must be odd. That =/= clean numbers are all odd numbers.

1. A clean number is an integer divisible by only 2 factors, one of which is greater than 2.
2. A clean number must be odd.

Think of it this way:
"A clean number is an integer divisible by 4"
"A clean number must be even"

^^
The latter doesnt mean that all even numbers are clean, and we already know that all of the numbers are even thanks to statement one.
