This topic is locked. If you want to discuss this question please re-post it in the respective forum.

While going thru a forum , i came across this uestion with the explanation given below:
What is the least value of the three digit integer y?

1) the sum of the three digits is 5
2) y is divisible by 5

From statement (1), we're told the sum of the three digits is 5. The least value will therefore be in the range of 100+. 104 should therefore be the smallest number. Statement (1) is sufficient.

From statement (2), were told y is divisible by 5. So the last digit should be either 0 or 5. So the number can either be 100 or 105. Since we're asked for the least value, therefore y has to be 100. Statement (2) is therefore sufficient.

My Doubt is
Here, both stems are giving different answers, so wht should we chose as the answer? D or E? pls clear my doubt.
Thanks

I will pick D

because the answer varies based on the conditions you apply. The conditions of the Stmt-1 & Stmt-2 are different thus you get different answers.

ok, thats fine. If from the same condition, we get two answers, then should we chose E?

Yes, if you can get one specific value with the same condition then I would go with E
