B

I. Insuff. M can be 7 * 6, N can be 15*6 or M = 7*8, N= 15*8
II. Suff. M = 7*(-3), N =15*(-3) or M = 7*(-5), N=15*(-5)
Either way the product is always positive.

IMO B (1'14'')

If m/n=7/15, mn=?
1). M and n are positive integers
not sufficient

2). The greatest common factor of m and n is 3
from this, we can find that at least m is (7*3)=21, then n must be 45 --> calculate the outcome of m.n
Because m/n=7/15, so if we want to find another greater couples, we should multiply each m & n with a same integer --> their greatest common factor will be greater than 3 --> eliminate this possibility
If N=-21 and M=-45, then the outcome of m.n is still the same

Therefore, B alone is sufficient

Yup agreed.

B alone is sufficient.
