If $$P$$ and $$Q$$ are positive integers, is $$P*Q$$ divisible by 63?

(1)GCD of $$P$$ and $$Q$$ is 6.
(2)LCM of $$P$$ and $$Q$$ is 1260.

For any 2 integers P & Q P*Q = (LCM of P & Q)*(GCD of P & Q)

(1) From this statement we can say P*Q ia divisible by 6 but nothing more than that. Hence Insufficient.
(2) From this statement: P*Q = 1260*GCD. Now 1260 alone is divisible by 63. So P*Q is divisible irrespective of the GCD. Hence Sufficient.

It is a good question and one might do it wrong if he is in a hurry.

From the number properties
P*Q = LCM(P,Q) * GCD(P,Q)

Thus from Stat -1 we have only GCD --> clearly it is not sufficient to answer the question
Stat-2 we are given LCM 1260 which is equal to 63 *20 if simplify it in terms of 63. --> clearly p*q is divisible by 63 as 63 is present in either in P or in Q or in both of them.
