Hello guys! Thanks for your continuous help

I have a question about this question: https://gmatclub.com/forum/when-the-dig ... 85733.html

On the sentence #1: "(1) The integer (M - N) has 12 unique factors.", shouldn't the question specify that they are referring only to positive factors?

I was trying to solve the wrong question by also considering negative factors. m I right about that?

Thanks

Hello, sweetlyimproved. I believe you will find your answer in the following thread:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/can-distinct-factors-of-a-positive-integer-be-negative-271724.html

In short, the GMAT™ is concerned with positive factors unless the problem were to specifically state that you needed to consider negative factors. Happy reading, and good luck with your studies.
