A) can be 6 and 2 or 4 and 3. Insuff
B)can be 2 and 6 or 1 and 7 . Insuff.
From both we see that it is 2 and 6 but we can say NOTHING about the value of the number , if it is 26 or 62
The ans should be E)

E.

1. Product 4*3, 6*2
2. Sum - many sums

together - insufficient because it can be either 62 or 26

From statement 1, we have X*Y = 12

Possible values:
X Y
2 6
3 4
6 2
4 3

So (1) is not sufficient.

From statement 2, we have X+Y = 8
Possible values
X Y
1 7
2 6
3 5
4 4
5 3
6 2
7 1

So (2) is not sufficient

Using (1) and (2), XY can be 62 or 26. So answer is (E)
