There are a bunch of buildings and their building numbers are all even numbers. If the numbers are 312 between 590 inclusive, what is the number of buildings? A. 139 B. 140 C. 141 D. 142 E. 143 ==> The number of consecutive even numbers of odd numbers=(the last term+the first term) )/2 +1. That is, (590312)/2 +1=139+1=140. That is, (590312)/2 +1=139+1=140 and the answer is B. Answer: B

What is the remainder when \(2^k\) is divided by 10? 1) k is a positive multiple of 10 2) k is a positive multiple of 4 ==> Modify the original condition and the question. The remainder dividing \(2^k\) by 10 is \(~2^1=~2, ~2^2=~4, ~2^3=~8, ~2^4=~6\). Thus, when it comes to ones, 2>4>8>6>2… are repeated, which means they have a cycle of four. Hence, the answer is 2) and B. Answer: B

In the xy plane, there is line K, (x/a)+(y/b)=1. What is the yintercept of line K? 1) a=b 2) b=5 ==> If you modify the original condition and the question, the yintercept is the value of y when x=0, so if you substitute x=0, from y/b=1, you get y=b, so you only need to know b. According to con 2), it is unique and sufficient. Therefore, the answer is B. Answer: B

A certain set X contains the number 20. Is the range of the numbers greater than 12? 1) The maximum of the set is 50 2) The set contains the number 25 ==> In the original condition, from range=Maxmin, there are 3 variables (r,M,m) and 1 equation (r=Mn), and in order to match the number of variables to the number of equations, there must be 2 more equations. Since there is 1 for con 1) and 1 for con 2), C is most likely to be the answer. However, for con 1), if Max=20, set X already includes 20, so the range is at least 5020=30>12, hence it is always yes and sufficient. Therefore, the answer is A. Answer: A

If m and n are positive integers, what is the value of m+n? 1) m/n=3/5 2) The greatest common divisor of m and n is 5 ==>In the original condition, there are 2 variables (m, n) for the right triangle, and in order to match the number of variables to the number of equations, there must be 2 equations. Since there is 1 for con 1) and 1 for con 2), C is most likely to be the answer. By solving con 1) and con 2), you get M=3*5=13 and n=5*5=25, so m+n=25+15=40, hence it is unique and sufficient. Therefore, the answer is C. Answer: C

Is \(x<xy<y\)? 1) \(x<y\) 2) \(0<x<1<y\)
==> In the original condition, there are 2 variables (x,y), so C is highly likely to be the answer. Through 1) & 2), 2) is true, and from 2) \(x<1\), both sides of the equation can be multiplied by y, and you get \(xy<y\). From \(1<y\), you multiply both sides of the equation by \(x\), you get \(x<xy\), then you get \(x<xy<y\), hence yes, and sufficient. B is the answer Answer: B Dear MathRevolution & Bunuel, If \(x=0.5\) and \(y=1.5\), statement 1 still valid. Why D is not the answer?

If x and y are integers greater than 1 and x>y, what are the values of x and y? 1) x+y=13 2) xy=22 ==> In the original condition, there are 2 variables (x,y) and in order to match the number of variables to the number of equations, there must be 2 equations. Since there is 1 for con 1) and 1 for con 2), C is most likely to be the answer. By solving con 1) and con 2), you get x=11 and y=2, hence it is unique and sufficient. The answer is c. However, this is an integer question, one of the key questions, so you apply CMT 4(A). For con 1), from (x,y)=(11,2),(10,3), it is not unique and not sufficient. For con 2), you only get (x,y)=(2,11), hence it is unique. Therefore, the answer is B, not C. Answer: B
