(1) x is an integer.
(2) x = 0


For the fraction to be an integer : either the denominator should be 1 or denominator should evenly divide the numerator.

(1) Not sufficient as for x = 1 the denominator does not evenly divide the numerator. 11/3. But for x = 0 it is an integer.

(2) Sufficient At x = 0, the fraction becomes 8/2 = 4. Hence always an integer.

Hence Option (B) is our choice.

(1) x is an integer.
(2) x = 0



1)
3x+8=x+2 => 2x = -6 => x = -3. \(\frac{-1}{-1}\) YES.
check x=1 => \(\frac{11}{3}\) NO.

2) clearly sufficient

Statement 1 : Since x is an integer, it can be any number positive or negative.
If x =5, then 23/5 is not an integer
If x = 0, then 8/2 is an integer

Therefore, not sufficient

Statement 2: x = 0 which gives us 8/2 = 4 is an integer... Sufficient

B is the answer here
