(1) \(\sqrt{k} < 16\)
(2) k is divisible by 16.


1. \(\sqrt{k} < 16\), so k<256. It can be any number. - Not Sufficient
2. k is divisible by 16.[/quote], 224 is divisible by 16, the next is 240, and the next is 256, but 224 and 256 are not in the range, so only 240 can be that number - Sufficient

Answer (A)

Hello

Your explanation is fine, but when second statement is sufficient to answer the question, and not first, then we mark the answer as B.

I) √k <16

√225<16 but 225 is not divisible by 16
√240 <16 but 240 is divisible by 16

Insufficient

II) within 224<k<256

Only 240 is divisible by 16 so
K/16=15
Unique value
Sufficient

Give kudos if it helps
