A. Tough one.

(1) Sufficient
t = 7k+6, where k is an integer

(7k+6)^2 + 5(7k+6) + 6
= 49k^2 +84k + 36 + 35k + 30 + 6
= 49k^2 + 119k + 72

49k^2 is divisible by 7.
119k is divisible by 7.
Thus, remainder is always remainder of 72/7, or 2.

(2) Insufficient

t^2 = 7k+1
t = +/-sqrt(7k+1) = an integer
t could be 6, 9, 15 etc...

If t = 6
t^2 + 5t + 6 = 36 + 30 + 6 = 72
72/7 = 10 R 2

If t = 15
t^2 + 5t + 6 = 225 + 75 + 6 = 306
306/9 = 34

1)
t= 7k+6

t^2+5t+6= 49k^2+2*7k*6+36+6
=49k^2+2*7k*6+72
divide this by 7 remainder always 2
suffcient
2)
t^2=7m+1

t^2+5t+6= 7m+1 +5t+6= 7m+7+ 5*t

m=9 t=8 5t = 40 REMAINDER 5
m=32 t=15 5t = 120 REMAINDER 1

not suffcient
