LCm of 2 and 17 = 34

i.e. n MUST be divisible by 34 but we can not be certain whether n will be divisible by any multiple of 34 or not hence

Answer: Option A

Which of the following must divide into n means which of the following must be factor of n

68 is NOT essentially a factor of 34

Since the LCM of 2 and 17 is 34, we see that, of the answer choices, only 34 must divide into n.

Answer: A
