Question: Is k Divisible by 18?

Comment on Is k Divisible by 18?

I solved it in this way.
1) 2k is divisible by 9. Lets take 2k = 9 then k = 4.5. but k must be an integer. so take 2k=18, then k = 9 which is not divisible by 18.
when 2k=36, k = 18 which is divisible by 18.
So statement 1 is not sufficient.
2) 9k is divisible by 2 which means 9k is even
so, k must be even which means k can be.
But 2 is not divisible by 18.
Same time 18 is also even, 18 is divisible by 18. So statement 2 is also not sufficient.
Combining we can say, k must be even and divisible by 9. so obviously as it includes 2, 2 x (multipliers of 9) always will be divided by 18. So, Answer is C.
