What is the source? The question makes no logical sense as a DS question. If I ask this question:

N is a positive two digit integer. What is the maximum possible value of N?

1. N is divisible by 5

2. N is divisible by 7

Then using no statements, the answer is 99, using S1, the answer is 95, using S2, the answer is 98, and using both statements the answer is 70. So what is the answer to this DS question? Is it A, B, C, D? There's no way to decide, because the question makes no logical sense.

When this question begins "N is a two digit positive integer", then N stands for a single value. It is not a variable that can have a maximum or minimum value, because there would be no way to decide what would constitute sufficient information - the more information you use, the more the maximum or minimum would be constrained. And really no matter what information you have, there will always be

some maximum possible value of N (even with no information at all, the maximum is 99) so the answer is D without even looking at the statements.

If the question instead asked "what is the value of N", it becomes a more interesting question, and then the answer is A. The approach in the first reply above is good, though the analysis of S1 is incomplete - if our two digit number is XY, where X is the tens digit, then S1 tells us that

10X + Y + X + Y = 103

11X + 2Y = 103

Now Y is a digit, so it cannot be greater than 9. So 11X must be 88 or 99, or the sum can't possibly work (2Y couldn't be big enough), and if X = 8, you find that Y is a decimal (Y is 7.5) which is impossible for a digit. So the only solution is N = 92.

A different way to look at it: if N+S = 103, then since S < 20 (since S is the sum of two single digit numbers), N must be in the 80s or in the 90s. But if you take any number N in the 80s, then if N is even, the sum S of its digits is even, and if N is odd, the sum S of its digits is odd. So N+S will be even+even or odd+odd, and if N is in the 80s, N+S will always be even. N+S could never equal 103, so the only possibility is that N is in the 90s, and in that case N+S = 103 can only have one solution.

Statement 2 doesn't let you solve for N - as the above posts demonstrate, it only lets you prove the units digit is 2.
