(2) n is a multiple of 3


frm 1: mn can be 18,36 so yes and no that mn are multiples of 3 insufficient

frm 2: no info of m is insufficient

frm 1& 2: we can have n as 3,6,9 units digit and mn to be multiple of 9 can be 18,36,27,36... so we get yes and no again

IMO E is correct

Hello

When we combine the statements, can we really take examples like 18, 27 etc??
We are given that n is a multiple of 3 so n can only be 3 or 6 or 9 isn't it?

So in that case, for the sum of m+n to be a multiple of 9 (coz then only the two digit number mn will be a multiple of 9), shouldnt m also be a multiple of 3 or 9?
