d/a means a is divisible by d

d/ab means ab divisible by d.

all are integers so ,

if ab is divisible by d,

1 a can be divisible by d
or
2 b can be divisble by d.

so the question stem asks must true.

so option a and b are could but not must.

option c is 2ab divisible by d. if ab is divisible by d then 2ab is divisible by d.
option d and e we can't predict.


so option C is correct.

A. d|a
B. d|b
C. d|2ab
D. d|(a+b)
E. d|(a-b)


--> d|ab is ab=dk(k=integer) and also 2ab=2dk can be divided by d.
Therefore, the answer is C.

d/ab = k => dk = ab. I dont know how could you give conclusion that ab= dk?

-> Because ab is divisible by d.
