Is x divisible by 11?

St1: xyz is divisible by 22 and 33 --> xyz is a multiple of 66
Let xyz = 66
x * y * z can be 11 * 2 * 3 or 2 * 3 * 11 or 1 * 6 * 11.
x may or may not be divisible by 11
Not Sufficient

St2: yz is divisible by 72 --> yz = 72k.
Not Sufficient as we have no information about x

Combining St1 and St2:
xyz = 66K --- (1)
yz = 72k --- (2)

(1)/(2) --> \(\frac{xyz}{yz}\) = \(x\) = \(\frac{11K}{12k}\)

If K = 12, k = 1 then x = 11 --> Is x divisible by 11? Yes
If K = 12, k = 11 then x = 1 --> Is x divisible by 11? No
Not Sufficient

Answer: E

Amazing question Bunuel
Here we need to check if x is divisible by 11
I used the concept of test cases here
Statement 1 => let x=1 y=66 z=2=> NO x/11≠integer
let x=11 y=66 z=1 => Yes x/11=integer
Not sufficient
Statement 2 => no clue of x => not suff
Statement 1 +statement 2=> x=1,y=72*66, z=2 => No
else X can be 11 too => YES

Not suff

Smash that E
