If r and s are non negative integers, \(p=1.9*10^r\) and \(q = 1.9*10^s\), what is the units digit of 10(p+q)?

(1) r is divisible by 2

(2) s is not divisible by 2

depending on the values of s and r, p and q each have a units digit of either 1 (if r or s are 0, making the value 1.9), 9 (if r/s are 1, making the value 19), or 0 (if r/s >1, for which the value will be 190, 1900...etc)
Clearly, both statements on their own are insufficient, since each only gives information on one of r and s, and not on the other.
Combined: from 1), p's units digit is 0 (r=2 ==> 19, r = 4 ==> 19,00, etc). from 2), q's units digit can either 1 (s=0), 9 (s=1), or 0 (s>2). specifically, if s=0, then P+q will have a decimal digit of 9 (x.9), and 10(p+q) will have a units digit of 9. Since we don't if this is the case or not, this is insufficient.

Question : Unit digit of 10(p+q) = \(10(1.9*10^r+1.9*10^s)\) = \(19(10^r+10^s)\)

From statement 1:

r is divisible by 2.
Then r could be 0,2,4,6...
If r is 0 then 10^0 = 1.
If r is 2 then 10^1 = 10.
But no info about s.
Insufficient.

From statement 2:

s is not divisible by 2.
Then s could be 1,3,5...
Again r is unknown.
Insufficient.

Combining both:
Let r = 0. s = 1.
10^0 = 1 and 10^1 = 10. then 19(11) = last digit is 9.
If r = 2. and s= 3.
Then unit digit will be 0.
Combining is also insufficient.

E is the answer.
