B. Thats B cuz smallest integer is 1. for 8x to be an integer, x can not be smaller than 1/8 or
0.125. so the tenth digit of x is a 0.

for st 1, x could be 0.5 or 0.125 or 0.0625 or some more fractions..

1)since 16x is an integer , 1/x is a factor of 16 then 1/x = 2,4,8,16
=> x= 0.5,0.25,0.125,0.0625 INSUFFI
2)since 8x i an integer => x=0.5,0.25,0.125 => tenths digit =nonzero for sure IMO B

minimum value of x 1/8 =0.125... any value >0.125 and <1 ... 10ths digit is non zero..

so. B.
