if n = 12 and p = 13 then:
7*12 = 84
6*13 + 1 = 79

if n = 6 and p = 6 then:
7*6 = 42
6*6+1 = 37

OA that I have is ; however, I'm feeling should give the right answer already.


K=7n
L=6p+1
(1): insuff
(2): 7n=6p+6: insuff: when n= 6k (k is an integer), p=k-1
(1) and (2): 7n=6n+1: suff

k= 7n
l=6p+6
1) is insufficient as the eq k=7n & l=6p +1 cannot be solved
2) insufficient as 7n=6p+6 cannot be resolvd
but if we combine these two then we get p=6
hence C
