OFFICIAL EXPLANATION
Hi All,
We're told to take the product of 2 prime numbers. We're asked which of the answers is NOT possible. This question can be solved with a mix of TESTing VALUES and TESTing THE ANSWERS.
A. A multiple of 33 -->(3)(11) = 33.... so the product of two primes CAN be a multiple of 33.
B. A multiple of 34-->(2)(17) = 34.... so the product of two primes CAN be a multiple of 34.
C. A multiple of 35-->(5)(7) = 35.... so the product of two primes CAN be a multiple of 35.
D. A multiple of 36--> The product 36 can be achieved in a number of ways: 1x36, 2x18, 3x12, 4x9 and 6x6.... but NONE of those involves 2 PRIMES.
E. A multiple of 37-->(2)(37) = 74.... so the product of two primes CAN be a multiple of 37.
Final Answer:
GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
