Is the integer 2b divisible by 6 ?
(1) 8b is divisible by 3.
(2) 9b is divisible by 12
its clearly asked whether the Integer 2b is divisible by 6.....so we can only to take the values to b which satisfies 2b as integer even 3/2 is possible but not 3/4
from statement 1----> 8b =>4*2b when divisible by 3 the possible values from given and statement 1 combined are 3/2,3,6......
conclusion:- statement 1 is enough to solve the question
statement 2 is clearly not enough to solve the equation.
So my answer would be A
The answer is NOT A it's C. It's explained several times on previous pages:
For a NO answer in (1) consider b = 3/2 --> 8b = 12, so it's divisible by 3 but 2b = 3, so not divisible by 6.
For an YES answer in (1) consider b = 3 --> 8b = 24, so it's divisible by 3 and 2b = 6, so divisible by 6.
