a is divisible by 10

b is a factor of 5


(1) Since 10 is a multiple of 5, a is divisible by 5. Then ab must be divisible by 5 as well. Sufficient.
(2) b must either be 1 or 5. If b is 5, then ab is divisible by 5, but if b is 1, then ab = a, and we don't know if a is divisible by 5. Insufficient.
