From F.S 1 , for n = \(2^2*3*5\), the number of factors = 3*2*2 = 12

Again, for n = \(2^3*3^2\), the number of factors = 4*3 = 12

Insufficient.

F. S 2 is clearly Insufficient.

Both combined together, we can use the above 2 examples only, it is again Insufficient.

E.

Yes, the answer is E: n could be 60 or 72.
