Bunuel,

B is proved wrong by taking p=0. Can we also prove it wrong by taking p as negative? For instance if p is -11 then 2p/11 is -2. Whereas p=11 then 2p/11 is 2. Since 2p/11 is both negative and positive, we can say B is insufficient. Can we use this?

Is \(\frac{4p}{11}\) a positive integer?


(1) \(p\) is a prime number

(2) \(2p\) is divisible by 11


Here from the statement 1 we know p is a positive number and it can be 2,3,5,7,11,13,17.........
So from this we cannot say 4p/11 is a positive integer or not
Consider Statement 2
given 2p/11 is divisible
so definitely 2 *(2p/11) is an integer but we cannot ensure that 4p/11 is positive or not
on combining equation 1 and 2 we can confirm that
Hence C

I got the answer correct and agree with you Bunuel. I just want to ask that in case of (2) 2p is divisible by 11, can p be a fraction like 11/7, this will still be divisible by 11.


2p is divisible by 11 implies that 2p must be an integer. p there can be a fraction, say 11/2, but not 11/7 because in this case 2p is not an integer.
Hi bunuel,
2p can be negative also if statement given is 2p divisible by 11..?
I know even in that case answer will be C,since prime cannot be negative.
