I get E.

This is not a multiple/factor problem.

The stimulus says:
of the multiples of 100 (100, 200, 300, etc.), x is closest to 500 and y is closest to 400.

This means that x rounds to 500 and y rounds to 400 (when rounding to the nearest 100).

450 < x < 550
350 < y < 450

800 < x+y < 1000

1: Insufficient
450 < x < 500
350 < y < 450

800 < x + y < 950 --> x+y rounds to either 800 or 900

2: Insufficient
450 < x < 550
350 < y < 400

800 < x + y < 950 --> x+y rounds to either 800 or 900

1 & 2 together: Insufficient
450 < x < 500
350 < y < 400

800 < x + y < 900 --> x+y still could round to either 800 or 900.

Multiple questions are for example: What is the least common multiple of 9 and 16. It tests your knowledge of multiples.

Factor/divisor are for example: What is the greatest common factor of 9 and 16. It tests your knowledge of factors/divisors.

This question doesn't really test your knowledge of multiples.

I am getting E as well:

x = 451, 499, 501, 549
y = 351, 399, 401, 449

Statement 1) X < 500

x+y = 802 (lowest), 1048 (Highest)

INSUFF

Statement 2) Y < 400

x+y = 802 (Lowest), 948 (Highest)

INSUFF

Together

X+Y = 802 (Lowest), 898 (Higest)
