Chat Session : 13th Feb
Section : Verbal
Topic : CR
Sub Topic : Assumption questions

Reiterating : To solve an assumption question it is a good idea to write down the Main point and Missing Info. The answer is always what the missing info is.

Tips :
1) Try being super aggressive to the argument or the author of the argument. Get in the mindset. HELPS A LOT.
2) How to get the main point and missing info is by trying to identify what the author is REALLY trying to say or jumping the gun

Dear souvik101990, I hope you are all right and hope to resume the GMAT study in the chat as well.

I have difficulty to resolve this kind of problem and I am so stressful.

If N is a positive integer, does N have exactly three factors?

(1) The integer $$N^2$$ has exactly five factors

(2) Only one factor of N is a prime number

If N is a positive integer, does N have exactly three factors?

(1) The integer $$N^2$$ has exactly five factors

(2) Only one factor of N is a prime number

How did I miss this.
Apologies for late response.

Here is what I would do on this question =>

Given data -> N >0 and N is an integer.
We are asked if N has three factors.

The number of factors of any integer K = p^a * q^b *r^c were p , q, r are prime factors of K is given by (a+1)*(b+1)*(c+1)

Now the only way N can have 3 factors is of N is of the form p^2 for some prime number p.

So lets dive into statements -->

If N^2 has 5 factors => N must be of the form p^2

Sufficient.

Statement 2 ->Only one factor of N is a prime number.
N can be 2^20 or 3^10 or 5^2

Not sufficient.

Hence A.

Excellent Question!
