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.

OPTION A
1) LCM OF all the values will end in 0 2) P CAN BE 17 OR 25!. SO IT CAN END IN 0 OR 7

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

Hence Answer D. I too followed your approach, but OA is A. I dont know why? can anyone explain....

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
