(1) 32 is a factor of m.

(2) m is a factor of 32.


    • For m to be an even integer, it should be a multiple of 2.

Statement 1 –



    • 32 is a factor of m
      o Thus m can be written as 32k
      o This clearly shows that m is a multiple of 2 and hence an even number.
    • Thus statement 1 is sufficient to answer the question.

Statement 2 –



    • m is a factor of 32.
    • Since m is factor 32, it can take any value: 2,4,8,16,32
      o And in all these cases m is an even integer.
    • Thus statement 2 is also sufficient to answer the question.

The correct answer is Option D.

Note: if m > 1 condition was not given, then, in that case, Statement 2 would have been insufficient to answer the question, because then the value m could have been 1 also, which is not an even number.

1) as 32 is a factor of m so 32 multiplied by any number give even integer so m is even integer. SUFFICIENT

2) all the factors of 32 are even except 1. As m is greater than 1 so m is even. SUFFICIENT

Answer D

(1) 32 is a factor of m.

(2) m is a factor of 32.


Statement 1) 32 is a factor of m

means m/32 = integer

so m has to be 32 or a multiple of it. Sufficient

Statement 2)

m is a factor of 32 since 32 = 2^5 and we know that m is an integer > 1 then it must be even to be a factor of 32.

Sufficient.
