Agreed that it is poorly worded, and I think it's a remainder question.

To me it seems, the question should be is n < 6 ?

On taking 1 and 2 as :

x - 5 = 6k

x+ 7 = 6m

I get D as in either case remainder of players < 6.

This is poorly worded question. Guess we should find the value of $$n$$. Given $$students=6q+n$$, where $$n<6$$. Basically $$n$$ is the remainder when the # of students is divided by 6.

(1) If 5 students were absent, the class can be equally divided into 6 teams --> directly gives the value of remainder as 5. Sufficient.

(2) If 7 more students were added in, all of the students can be equally divided into 6 teams --> $$n+7$$ is a multiple of 6, as $$n<6$$ then $$n$$ must be 5. Sufficient.

Do we really need options a or b to answer the questions..

N is the reminder when a number is divided by 6.. It has to be <6 in any case....

That's true, we may not need either of the statements if we need to prove "whether n<6?", however we need at least one of these statements if need to "find value of n".

Ironically, this question doesn't tell you what needs to be done, however, in both the scenarios answer is D
