HI,
Always be careful while eliminating a statement..
what is statement I
(1) 7, 15, 24, and n are all factors of x.
the factors are 15 and 24, so x will be a MULTIPLE of 5 and 2..
thus UNIT's digit will be 0
Suff
ans A

Since x is divisible by both 15 and 24 from statement 1 we can say that unit digit of x must be zero.
Again statement 2 is not sufficient as we don't know what x might be.
hence A

Great Question.
Here we need the units digit of x
Statement 1=>
this statement tells us that 5 and 2 must be prime factors of x.
Hence the units digit of x must be zero.
Hence Sufficient.

Statement 2
x must lie between (720,720*7)
Not sufficient

Hence A
