There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

Answer = A. The explanation in the MGMAT is a bit confusing though. It states that z is NOT divisible by 2, and because of this, it is not divisible by 6. However, this statement is SUFFICIENT.

But what you gave us to answer the question, the OA reveals the answer is A.... however, we don't even know what A is. You need to post the choices in the question as well A or B or C or D or E so that we can use elimination or consider the choices themselves

A) Statement #1 is sufficient alone. B) Statement #2 is sufficient alone. C) Statement's #1 and #2 are sufficient when only put together. D) Statement's #1 and #2 are sufficient seperately on their own. E) Statement's #1 and #2 together are not sufficient.

1) The greatest common factor of z and 12 is 3. 2) The greatest common factor of z and 15 is 15.

statement 1 is sufficient, if GCF of z and 12 is 3, it means z is not divisible by 6. For if Z were divisible by 6 the GCF would not have been 3.

Statement 2 is not sufficient to answer the question. if GCF of z and 15 is 15, Z could be either 15 (or multiple of 15) or 30 (or multiple of 30). If z is 15 it is not divisible by 6 and if it is 30 it is divisible by 6. Insufficient.

Hello from the GMAT Club BumpBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

Want to see all other topics I dig out? Follow me (click follow button on profile). You will receive a summary of all topics I bump in your profile area as well as via email.

Realistic GMAT question would mention that z is a positive integer.

(1) The greatest common factor of z and 12 is 3 --> if z were divisible by 6 (for example 6, 12, 18, ...) then the GCF of z and 12 (which is also divisible by 6) would have been more than 3 (6 or 12) and since the GCF is 3 then z is not divisible by 6. Sufficient.

(2) The greatest common factor of z and 15 is 3 --> if z=3 then the answer is NO but if z=6 then the answer is YES. Two different answers, not sufficient.
