If x is a divisible by 6 and 9, it has to be a multiple of LCM of 6 and 9 and thus multiple of all factors of the LCM.

Now LCM is : 6=2*3 and 9 =3*3, LCM = 2*3*3=18
Thus factors of 18 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18
Thus I and II are correct..

B

We cannot say anything about 27 since if the number is 36, it is NO but if number is 54, it is yes..

x is a multiple of 6 so it has 2 and 3.
x is a multiple of 9, so it has two 3s.

So x has a 2 and two 3s at least.
x = 2 * 3 * 3 * k
This means x is a multiple of 3 and 18. But we cannot say anything about 27 since we do not know if x has three 3s.

Answer (B)

At first determine the minimum value of x

lcm of 6 and 9 will help determine minimum value.

lcm ( 9 and 6) = 18

18 is divisible by 3 and 18.

The best answer is B.
