"rounding m to the nearest 10". If I understood this correctly last two digits of our m could be 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14.

(1) m is a multiple of 10

We have only one option from the list 11110. Sufficient.

(2) Reversing the digits of m results in a smaller number

We can get 50111 > 11105, 60111 > 11106, ... , 90111 > 11109, 21111 > 11112, 31111 > 11113.

11111 = 11111 and only one option 01111 < 11110 Sufficient.

Answer D

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

1) Rounding m to nearest 10 means...11105 <=m<= 11115 ... In this range only 1 no is a multiple of 10 . So and is m= 11110.
But I am confused if a nearest ten can be considered as rounded to itself.

2) In the same range as above
11105 <=m< =11115, again only if the no is 11110 then reverse is 1111 which is less, else all other nos do not satisfy this.

So answer is either B or D

I don’t know for sure. I’ve met several GMAT questions on this forum which started with the line “… integers x and y …” and intuitively I took that as if x and y should be different integers, but the only way those questions could be solved eventually was that x ought to be identical to y. In this question, I guess, we have general case with bunch of numbers which are rounded to the nearest ten, and if the number has last two digits as 10 then it will be rounded to itself. But, this is my guess. Let’s wait for Bunuel's post or official answer.

Hi,

Rounding to nearest 10 means the nearest multiple of 10..
The number could be anything...
If it is already a multiple of 10, the nearest multiple of 10 will be itself...

Hi chetan2u
Can you please post a solution to this one=> 25-integers-are-written-on-a-board-are-there-at-least-two-consecutive-195899.html

A couple of people have also posted the query after my post which has further increased my curiosity. :shock: 8-)
