From statement 1:

LCM of 16 and 15 is 240. Hence irrespective of the other number N. Unit digit of P will always be zero.
A is sufficient.

From statement 1:

\(\frac{p}{17*25!}\)
Then p must be 17*25! or 34*25!

Unit digit is not always the same.
Insufficient.

A is the answer.

If p Is a positive Integer, what is the units digit of p?
1) p is divisible by 14, 15, 16, and n.
2)p(17(25!))p(17(25!))= k, where k Is an Integer.


Concept: if a number is divisible by 5 and 2 then the unit digit has to be 0.

By that logic:


Stat1:
P is div by 14(2) 15(5)
Since we have a 2 and 5

We can say it is sufficient

Stat 2:

Since P is divisible by the product of 17*25!
We can say the last digit has to be 0.

We can say it is sufficient


Hence Answer D.

Stmt 1: p has 2 and 5 as factors. So, units digit will have 0. Hence sufficient.

Stmt 2: Again, p is divisible by 2 and 5, so units digit will have 0. Hence sufficient.

Answer Option D

Statement 1:

If it has to be divisible by both 16 and 15 then units digit has to be 0 as common multiple for these 2 nos is 240. Hence Unit digit of P will always be zero.
Sufficient.


Statement 2

\(\frac{p}{17*25!}\)
Then p can be
17*25!
34*25!
68*25!
etc

So, Unit digit is not sa,e.
Insufficient.


A is the answer.

statement1::

lcm of 14,15,16,n = 1080n
so p is divisible by 1080n
this implies unit digit has to be 0
hence, a is sufficient

statement 2:

25! contains trailing zeros
this also implies p must have unit digit 0
hence st 2 is sufficient

both statements are sufficient individually so ans :: D

From statement 1, p must have a 0 in units place because it has 5 in 15 and at least a 2 in 14 or 16 , so the answer for units digit of p is 0
1 is sufficient
From statement 2, 25! has a 0 in its units place and p/(17*25!) is an integer so again units digit of p must have a 0.
2 is sufficient
therefore, answer is D
