//A//
1: so m and p both are even and m is not a factor of p, r if p is divided by m will be at least 2. so suff..
2: if m = 5 and p = 6, r is 1. no.
if m = 10 and p = 15, r is 5. yes.
so nsf..

since both m and p are integers, should'nt r always be greater than or equal to 1..

for ex 5 divided by 4 or 8 divided by 3...

can someone please come up with a possibility where r is less than 1 except when there is perfect divisibility?

In addition to the question above,

so m and p both are even

Is this always true when the greatest common factor is 2? Is there a specific pattern for this?

1)2*4 =p ,2*3=m in this case r=1
2)LCM=30=5*3*2 =>2,3,5,6,10,15,30 are the possible numbers INSUFFI

(1) and (2) SUFFI remainder!=1 henceANSWERS IMO C

1. 2<m<mx+r

If they are both divisible by 2. m and mx+r are both even integers.
m is even integer ==> mx is even integer ==> r are even integer.
Thus mean r>1. ==> SUFF
2. Others mentioned. INSUFF.
