The question stem states integers. from statement 1 : Factors of 30 that are between 2 and 8 are: 3, 5 and 6. Not Sufficient from statement 2: Factors of 12 that are between 2 and 8 are: 3 and 6. Not Sufficient Both taken together: k can be either 3 or 6. Not Sufficient. You missed 6. Hope that helps.

1. K is a factor of 30. 2. K is a factor of 12.
Bunuel VeritasPrepKarishma niks18Is B incorrect since Q mentions about factors (ie no when divided by factor will leave remainder as zero) and not prime factors (B's distinct prime factors shall be 2 and 3) Since only 3 falls in range given by Q, B would have been correct answer choice.
