(1) n is divisible by 9 and 8.
(2) 400 < n < 500

(1) n can be 72 (p=3,q=2), 16*27 (p=4,q=3), 36*64 (p=6,q=4)..LCM value is different

(2)
if q =2 then p cannot take any value as
7^2 = 49 * 8 <400
and 8^2 = 64 * 8>500
if q = 3 then p can take 4 making n = 432

if q = 4 then p cannot take any value as
2^2 = 4*64 <400
3^2 = 9*64>500
P cannot take any value apart from 4
if p=2 then q cannot take any value fulfilling the criteria
if p=3 then q cannot take any value fulfilling the criteria
if p =5 then q cannot take any value fulfilling the criteria
One solution Sufficient
B
