x = 5k_1
y = 5k_2

A) x^2 + y^2 = 25(K_1^2 + K_2^2) --> Divisible by 5
B) x - y = 5(K_1 - K_2) --> Divisible by 5
C) xy = 25(K_1*K_2) --> Divisible by 5
D) x + y = 5(K_1 + K_2) --> Divisible by 5
E) x + y = 5(K_1 + K_2) --> Not divisible by 10 always

(C) xy is divisible by 5

(D) x + y is divisible by 5

(E) x + y is divisible by 10

The best way to solve this problem is plugging in some values of x and y

Let x = 5 and y = 10

(A) x^2 + y^2 is 125 (25+100) which is divisible by 5

(B) x - y is -5 ( 5 - 10 ) which is divisible by 5

(C) xy is 50 (5*10) which is divisible by 5

(D) x + y is 15 ( 5 + 10 ) which is divisible by 5

(D) x + y is 15 ( 5 + 10 ) which is not divisible by 10

Hence IMHO (E)

Hi All,

This question can be solved rather easily by TESTing VALUES (the approach that Abhishek009 used). The prompt never states that X and Y are positive though, so you don't have to use two different positive multiples of 5. You COULD use...

X = 0
Y = 5

That would make the calculations even easier/faster and still provide the correct answer to the question.

Here we can choose 5,10 and 5,15 as the possible cases
and apart of E all satisfy the requirement
hence E
