1) n is a multiple of 5
2) n is a multiple of 12

(1)
just plug in numbers.
say n = 5. 5/6 = remainder = 1
if n = 15, 15/6 --> remainder = 3
if n= 20, 20/6 --> remainder = 2

hence we can't be certain....therefore insufficient.

(2) n is a multiple of 12 and 12 is a multiple of 6.

therefore n/6 will have a 0 remainder.

Think in in terms of prime factor, we need atleast one 2 and one 3 to be a multiple of 6
st:1 doesnt have it
st 2: 12 = 2^2*3 gives us a 2 and a 3.
hence B

What is the remainder when the positive integer n is divided by 6?

(1) n is multiple of 5. If n=5, then n yields the remainder of 5 when divided by 6 but if n=10, then n yields the remainder of 4 when divided by 6. We already have two different answers, which means that this statement is not sufficient.

(2) n is a multiple of 12. Every multiple of 12 is also a multiple of 6, thus n divided by 6 yields the remainder of 0. Sufficient.
