2) A mod 3 = 2


(1) tells us it can take values 12, 13, 14, 15, 24,25,26,27,36,37,38,39......not sufficient

(2) tells us it can take values 2,5,8,11,14,17,20,23,26,29,32,35,38,41.....not sufficient

on combining we get values 14, 26, 38....in all cases A mod 6 will be 2

Hence Sufficient
C

=> Condition 1)
A = 0, 1, 2, 3.
This is not sufficient.

Condition 2)
A = 2, 5.
This is not sufficient.

Condition 1) & 2)
From the condition 2), we have four cases as follows.
A = 12k + 2
A = 12k + 5
A = 12k + 8
A = 12k + 11
From the condition 1), A should be the case that A = 12k + 2 = 6*(2k) + 2.
Thus both conditions together are sufficient.

Ans: C

Hi..

lets see what the Q means ..

we are looking for remainder when A is divided by 6.... remainder has to from 0 to 5

lets see the statements...

1) A mod 4 = A mod 12
the remainder when A is divide by 12, which is 6*2, will be EQUAL or MORE than the remainder when A is divided by 6...
also the remainder when A is divide by 4 will be EQUAL or LESS than the remainder when A is divided by 6...
here but the remainders when div by 12 and when div by 4 are SAME SO when div by 6 will also be same or it will be from 0 to 3

insufficient

2) A mod 3 = 2
when A is divided by 3, remainder is 2... so when div by 6, it will be 2 or 2+3
two values possible

insufficient

combined..
statement I tells us that it is from 0 to 3 and statement II tells it is 2 or 5.
ONLY 2 is common
ans 2
C
