1. n is a multiple of 4
2. n is a multiple of 6


Probably the best way to solve this problem is to test different numbers.

(1) n is a multiple of 4 --> if n=4 then the answer is NO but if n=24 then the answer is YES. Not sufficient.
(2) n is a multiple of 6 --> if n=6 then the answer is NO but if n=24 then the answer is YES. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Well, n is obviously a multiple of LCM of 4 and 6, so n is a multiple of 12. Now, again if n=12 then the answer is NO but if n=24 then the answer is YES. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.

Is the positive integer n a multiple of 24 ?

(1) n is a multiple of 4. Not sufficient.
(2) n is a multiple of 6. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) n is a multiple of both 4 and 6 which means that it's a multiple of least common multiple of 4 and 6, which is 12. So, even taken together statements are not sufficient, since n can be for example 12 as well as 24. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.

Generally if a positive integer n is a multiple of positive integer a and positive integer b, then n is a multiple of LCM(a,b).
