I read the question as p^(q/sqrt(q)) and that was leading to a C answer.

Yep. Got it.

I guess the funda here is hidden in the Q stem.
Does not matter if the answer is a negative or positive as long as it is an integer.

the question boils down to P*sqrt(q) is an integer only when p is an integer and q is a perfect sq

Statement 1 - both are satisfied so sufficient
statemnt 2 not sufficient

Answer A

If we had to add a constraint that is \(p\frac{q}{\sqrt{q}}\) a positive integer ? (or negative integer for that matter), will answer still be the same?
coz Sqroot Q = +-P as per statement 1. isn't it?


Yes and in this case the answer would be C.

(1) \(q = p^2\) --> \(p=\sqrt{q}\) --> \(p\frac{q}{\sqrt{q}}=\sqrt{q}*\frac{q}{\sqrt{q}}=q=integer\). Sufficient.

Answer: A.


Bunuel, Isn't \(p\frac{q}{\sqrt{q}}\) a mixed number. Equivalent to \(p + \frac{q}{\sqrt{q}}\)

Nope. It's \(p*\frac{q}{\sqrt{q}}\).

IMO A...

Statement 1 is sufficient since q is +ve (given) and p can be +ve or -ve, the expression would always be an integer.
Statement 2 is not sufficient since we do not know whether (sqrt)q is integer or non-integer. So the output of the expression could be integer or non-integer.

So, A.
