1) not suff as /4 last two digit must be /4, nothing for H
2) Since it is divisible by 9, sum if the digits must be divisible by 9 , so we have 14+H should be divisible by 9, now H can have only 4 as values so as to be 18, hence H=4 suff

Is the Statement I correct? How can N be divisible by 4 if the sum of last two digits is not divisible by 4?
I know even if the sum of last two digits was divisible by 4 the answer will still be insufficient. But I am not sure if the statement I is correct.

An integer to be divisible by 4, the last two digits must be divisible by 4, not the sum of the last two digits. For example, 123356 is divisible by 4 because 56 is divisible by 4.

(1) N is divisible by 4.
(2) N is divisible by 9.

(1) For a number to be divisible by 4, its last two digits must be divisible by 4. So in case of 5H72, since last two digits are divisible by 4 (72 is a multiple of 4), 5H72 WILL be divisible by 4, irrespective of the value of H (meaning H can take any value from 0 to 9 doesnt matter). So Insufficient.

(2) For a number to be divisible by 9, its sum of digits must be divisible by 9. So 5+H+7+2 = 14+H must be divisible by 9. We can see that H can thus take only one value of '4', which will make sum of digits as 18, and thus divisible by 9. Sufficient.

Here's an interesting variant of this problem that I thought of while solving this one!

Quote:
The number N is 6H12, the hundred's digit being represented by H. What is the value of H?

(1) N is divisible by 4.
(2) N is divisible by 9.

In this case, the answer is E, even though all I did was change the number slightly...
