both the statements are required to answer this ques

by observation, each statement is not enough to ans

use both statements

u get 16=1, which is incorrect

it is possible only if both are 0

(1) p = 4q

(2) q = 4p


Statement 1
We dont know anything about q, so cannot find p. Not sufficient.

Statement 2
We dont know anything about q, so cannot find p. Not sufficient.

Combining the two statements,
Substituting q=4p from second into first, we get
p = 4*4p = 16p or 16p-p = 0 or 15p = 0 or p=0. Thus p is 0. Sufficient.

Hence C answer.
