Answer is C

Statement 1 : [] + ∆ = 12
Now the ordered pair can be
(9,3)(8,4)(7,5)(6,6)(5,7)(4,8)(3,9) (not sufficient)

Statement 2:
14,2[]∆ is divisible by 5,
That means ∆ is 5,
But [] can be any integer from 1to 9 (not sufficient)

Statement 1&2:
[]+∆= 12 => ∆=5
=> [] = 12-5
[] = 7

Putting value of []&∆ in 14,2[]∆
We get 14,275 which is divisible by 25.

Asked: If \(\square\) and \(\triangle\) represent digits, is the 5-digit number \(14,2\square \triangle\) is divisible by 25.
For a number to be divisible by 25, last 2 digits should be {00,25,50,75}

(1) \(\square + \triangle = 12\)
If \((\square, \triangle)\)= (8,4); NO
Bur if \((\square, \triangle)\)= (7,5); YES
NOT SUFFICIENT

(2) The 5-digit number \(14,2\square \triangle\) is divisible by 5.
\(\triangle \)= {0,5}
If \(\square = 1\); NO
But if\( (\square, \triangle)\) = {(0,0),(2,5),(5,0),(7,5)}; YES
NOT SUFFICIENT

(1) +(2)
(1) \(\square + \triangle = 12\)
(2) The 5-digit number \(14,2\square \triangle\) is divisible by 5.
\( \triangle\) = {0,5}
\((\square, \triangle) = (7,5)\); Since \((\triangle, \square) \neq (12,0)\)
SUFFICIENT

If □◻ and △△ represent digits, is the 5-digit number 14,2□△ divisible by 25.

(1) □+△=12
(2) The 5-digit number 14,2□△ is divisible by 5.

For digit to be divisible by 25 it should end with 25 ,50 ,75, or 00.
(1) □+△=12
Possibilities of pairs (9,3) (8,4), (7,5) (6,6)
Pair 7,5 is divisible by 25 but other pairs are not.
Insufficient

(2) The 5-digit number 14,2□△ is divisible by 5.
possible answers △ can take 0 and 5, But □ can be 1-9 any values But not all divisible by 25 like pair (4,0) (4,5) and more
Insufficient

Combining 1 and 2 :
Only pair 7,5 can be answer: Adds to 12 and divisible by 5 and pair 7,5 will be divisible by 25.
Sufficient

The number which is divisible by 25 that number has to be divisible by 5 also. In that case state A is sufficient to ans the question. i dont agree with the solution.
