(1) d is prime (2) a>b>c>d Question says, abcd =5040 thus a,b,c and d could be 7,8,9 and 10 or 7, 8, 9, 10 because 7*8*9*10 = 5040 and also (7)*(8)*(9)*(10)=5040 Statement 1: d is prime. Clearly d is 7, as prime can not be negative. Sufficient Statement 2: a>b>c>d => d could be 7 or 10. Not sufficient. Hence ans A it is.

Factorize: 5040 = \(2^4X3^2X5X7\) =7x8x9x10 A: If d is a prime, only possible value is 7.  Sufficient. B: a>b>c>d => d = 7  Sufficient Am I missing something ?

Yes thats the mean little trick there. You will have to consider the negative numbers too.

(1) d is prime (2) a>b>c>d In that case, answer should be E because with stmt 1 again, d value is either 7 or 7.

Hi Bunuel, Does that mean the anwer is wrong. Bunuel wrote: sinhap07 wrote: rajathpanta wrote: a, b, c and d are consecutive integers such that the product abcd=5040, what is the value of d?
(1) d is prime (2) a>b>c>d In that case, answer should be E because with stmt 1 again, d value is either 7 or 7. d is a prime number, so it cannot be 7. Only positive integers can be primes (the smallest prime is 2).

(1) d is prime
(2) d < c < b < a Given product of consecutive integers a, b, c, and d is 5,040 then we get 7 * 8* 9* 10.. 1. d is prime => and only prime in this series is 7...Sufficient. 2. d < c < b < a then it has to be 7 < 8 < 9 < 10... we get d as 7...Sufficient. IMO D is the correct answer...Both choices are independently sufficient.

a*b*c*d=5040 also 5040=2^4*3^2*5*7 or, 5040=10*9*8*7
(1) d is prime
d=7 sufficient !!
(2) d < c < b < a
d=7 sufficient !!
D

(1) d is prime
(2) d < c < b < a Factors of 5,040= 10*9*8*7 (1) d is prime. Only prime number in factors is 7. Sufficient. (2) d < c < b < a d is the smallest number, i.e. 7. Sufficient. D is the answer

(1) \(d\) is prime (2) \(a>b>c>d\) abcd = 5040, where a,b,c,d are consecutive integers. d = ? 1) d is prime 5040 = 7*8*9*10 => d = 7 Sufficient. 2) a > b > c > d d = 7 or d = 10 => a, b, c, d can also be negative consecutive integers. InSufficient. A is the answer.
