Statement 1:
Can be true for 1 3 6 9 12 if divided by 3,
Can be true for 12, 18, 36 if divided by 3.
So insufficient

Statement 2:
Can be true for 3 9 15 etc.
Can be true for 2 4 6 8 etc.

So insufficient

Combining these two
Say we have series 12 18 36 all number are divisible by 3 and difference between them is even.
Similarly 3 9 15 is also divisible by 3 and difference between numbers is even as well.

So again insufficinet.

Easy E.

Just imagine multiples of 12 or just odd multiples of 3.
