The 2 digits that can yield a product of 6 include: 16, 32, 23 and 61.

First Statement:Both 32 and 16 can produce the unique prime factor 2 only. Insufficient.

Second Statement: sqrt(x) being a positive integer. Only 16 fits this to give 4. Sufficient.


B is the answer.

(1) x has only one unique prime factor.
(2) \(\sqrt{x}\) is an integer.


Assume the number to be x = ab
Given: a*b = 6
This means x = 16 or x = 32 or x = 23 or x = 61

Statement 1: x has only one unique prime factor
In all the cases, there is only one prime factor and the product of the digits = 6
Hence there can be more than one value of x.
Insufficient

Statement 2: \(\sqrt{x}\) is an integer
Out of x = 16 or x = 32 or x = 23 or x = 61,
\(\sqrt{x}\) is an integer only for x = 16
Hence we have only one value of x.
Sufficient

Option B

If the product of the digits of a two-digit number x is 6, what is the value of x?

(1) x has only one unique prime factor.
(2) \(\sqrt{x}\) is an integer.

Let X = AB.
Given AxB = 6. This means AB can be 16, 23,32,61.

Statement 1: X has only 1 unique prime factor.

So X can be - 16, 23, 32 and 61. Not sufficient.

Statement 2: \(\sqrt{x}\) is an integer.

The only perfect square in the numbers identified is 16. Hence sufficient.

Answer B.

Because x * y = 6, therefore, x can be 1/2/3/6 as all are factors of 6.
Statement 1 - X can be 3 or 2. Not sufficient.
Statement 2 - X has to be 1 since x^1/2 = integer. Only possible with 1. Sufficient
Hence B
