(1) R + M = 13

R = 4 and M = 9
RM is divisible by 7.

R = 5 and M = 8
RM is not divisible by 7.

INSUFFICIENT

(2) R is divisible by 3

R = 6 or 9
M = 7 or 4

RM = 67 or 94. Both are not multiples of 7. SUFFICIENT.

OPTION: B

from 1:

R,M can be
( 49,94,58,85,67,76)

so 49 is divisible by 7 so in sufficient


from 2: r divisible by 3 so RM can be ( 67 or 94) both are not divisible by 7 or 63 divisible by 7

insufficient

Combining 1 & 2 we get 94,67 both are in sufficient ,
so RM is not multiple of 7

IMO C

Archit3110 I am thinking C is the answer. Here is how:

Is RM multiple of 7?

St 1: RM could be 67 (insufficient), 85 (sufficient), or 94 (insufficient). So St 1 is insufficient

St 2: RM could be 63 (sufficient) or 67 (insufficient). So St 2 is insufficient

Combining Sts 1 and 2 (R + M = 13 and R is divisible by 3), RM = 67 (insufficient) or 94 (insufficient). So answer is C

Did I miss anything?

Archit3110 You are correct. I meant to say C. This how I lose easy points on DS questions.

Can someone please explain where I went wrong:

1.) R+M = 13

E.g. 1+12,2+11,3+10,4+11...... 12+1

2.) R is divisible by 3

E.g. 3,6,9,12

1&2 combined could be:

R = 3,6,9,12
M = 10,7,4,1

30/7 does not work
56/7 would work

Please help me out :)

R and M are digits. They can only take values from 0 to 9
RM is a 2-digit number and not the product of R and M
hope it is clear
