statement 1: number n= 3x+1

n can be 7 or 4 so insufficient

Statement 2: number is either 5x+1 or 5x+3

n can be 21 or 6 so insufficient

Combining both : n can be 16 or 13 so insufficient


Correct ans is E

+1 Kudos if you like the post :)

(1) When n is divided by 3, the remainder is odd.
(2) When n is divided by 5, the remainder is odd.



(1) n=3x+1
two cases
1st is when x is odd then 3x+1 =odd+odd=even
remainder=0
2nd is when x is even then 3x+1= even+odd = odd
remainder =1
Not suff...

(2) n=5x+1
two cases
1st is when x is odd then 5x+1 =odd+odd=even
remainder=0
2nd is when x is even then 5x+1= even+odd = odd
remainder =1
Not suff...

combining both n is multiple of both 3 &5 thus
n=15x+1

two cases
1st is when x is odd then 15x+1 =odd+odd=even
remainder=0
2nd is when x is even then 15x+1= even+odd = odd
remainder =1
Not suff...

Stem: \(n\) \(mod\) \(2\)


I) \(n=3k+(2p+1)\) \(\implies\) \(Remainder_n=0+1\) OR \(Remainder_n=1+1\) \(\implies\) \(NS\)

II) \(n=5L+(2m+1)\) \(\implies\) \(Remainder_n=0+1\) OR \(Remainder_n=1+1\) \(\implies\) \(NS\)

I&II) \(n=15x+5=5(3x+1)\) Which is essentially the same issue as under I & II:
\(Remainder_n=1*1\) OR \(Remainder_n=1*0\) \(\implies\) \(NS\)
