What is the remainder when the positive integer x is divided by 8?

(1) When x is divided by 12, the remainder is 5.
(2) When x is divided by 18, the remainder is 11.

I think E

1) Insuff. x = 17, 29, 41 ... each give a remainder 5 when divided by 12. Same numbers give remainders of 1, 5, 7 when divided by 8
2) Insuff. x = 29, 47, 65 give rem = 11 when divided by 18. When div by 8 each gives, 5, 7, 1 ... as remainders.

I have a question - ex 5/8 Can we say the remainder is 5 (Quotient = 0)?
