To find whether P = Q

P > 1

Statement 1

P is a factor of Q

=> P \(\leq\) Q

=> P can be 2 and Q can be 4 and P \(\neq\) Q

=> P can be 4 and Q can be 4 and P = Q

Statement 1 is not sufficient

Statement 2

P is a multiple of Q => P \(\geq\) Q

=> P can be 8 and Q can be 4 and P \(\neq\) Q

=> P can be 8 and Q can be 8 and P = Q

Statement 2 is not sufficient

Combining statements 1 and 2

We have P \(\leq\) Q and P \(\geq\) Q

=> P = Q

Statements 1 and 2 together are sufficient

Hence option C

If P and Q are positive integers, and if P > 1, does P = Q?


(1) P is a factor of Q
(P, Q) can be (2,2) or (2,4) or...
Here P< or = Q
NOT SUFFICIENT

(2) P is a multiple of Q
(P, Q) can be (2,2) or (4,2) or...
Here P> or = Q
NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining , we get P = Q
SUFFICIENT

Answer C


POINT TO REMEMBER: If Any Number P is both factor and multiple of other number Q. This means, both numbers P & Q are equal.
