If x is a positive integer, is 108/(x-2) an integer?

I. x is non-prime number less than 9
II. x is a multiple of 4 and a factor of 20.

From S1:

x is a non-prime number. x can be 1,4,6,8.
for any mentioned value of x, 108/x-2 will be an integer.
Sufficient.

From S2:

x is a multiple of 4 and a factor of 20.
x can be 4,20.
for both 4 and 20. 108/x-2 will be an integer.
Sufficient.

D is the answer.

Agree, and the condition that \(x<9\) simplifies the task eliminating the choice \(x=20\), so we don't need \(20\) at all.

Render, You are combining both statements A and B and saying that x as 20 is not required. But, we need to validate each statement individually.
