I've seen this [ xxx ] before on this board, but I have no idea what it means. I've seen people call it "mod xxx". Is that right? What is it? Is it supposed to be absolute value?

Sorry for not knowing - I just am unsure.

If it's absolute value, then I guess I think we just need to make sure that the numbers don't come out to 1 or 0. And even together we can plug in something like 2 and -2, which are both even, but together make 0. And 0! is 1, which is odd.

So I'm going with E.

I would pick E.

s1: A is even
We dont know anything about B. Insufficient

s1: B is Even
We dont know anything about B. Insufficient

s1+s2: Since it does not also say that A & B are distinct, if A=B=0
then [A+B]! = 0! = 1 odd
or if A=2, B=0
then [A+B]! = 2! = 2 even
Insufficient

Agree with E. if A nad B are negative even integers, then [A+B]! can not even be defined.
