If A^3 is divisible by 24, that is \(2^3*3\), so A will be divisible by 2*3=6..
Now we are looking for AB^2 is divisible by 216, that is \(2^3*3^3\)..
Since A is divisible by atleast a 6, we are looking if B^2 is divisible by 216/6=36=6^2, or is B divisible by 6...

(1) B is a multiple of 6
Yes sufficient..

(2) B is divisible by 30
Again B is divisible by 6..
Yes sufficient
