Statement 1 is clearly insufficient.

It says N + 5 should be divisible by 7.

16+5=21
23+5=28
30+5=35
37+5=42. and so on

Statement 2 is also similarly insufficient.

21+6=27
30+6=36
39+6=45
48+6=54

Combining both , we get N = 30

Thus, option C is right.

30+5=35
30+6=36



156+5 : 161 : 161/7 = 23
156+6 : 162 : 162/9 = 18


Similarly there infinite solution when statement 1 & 2 are considered together, hence, not sufficient.

St 1: N + 5 = 7k , Or N = 7k - 5 -------- (I) Insufficient as we have no info about N and k

N can be 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 etc

St 2: N + 6 = 9k , Or N = 9k - 6 -------(II) Insufficient as we have no info about N and k

N can be 3, 12, 21, 30 etc

We need to check to for some other values with formula : (LCM of 7 & 9) + (first common value)

63k + 30 : - common values are 30, 93 etc for different values of k (Combining Insufficient)

(E)
