Hi,

Hope this question is not at silly at it sounds, but what would does " x,y,z are consecutive integers" mean, it is:
A - that they are consecutive in that order i.e. something like x= 2, y=3, z=4
B - that in some order they are consecutive i.e. x=3, y=2, and z=4 are consecutive numbers if you were to order them as y,x,z

Many thanks

For DS questions, I'd rather interpret it as B.

Unless, it says:
x,y,z are consecutive integers, where x<y<z

Sometimes it may clarify by saying:
x,y,z are consecutive integers, not necessarily in that order.

But, if it is written that "x,y,z are consecutive integers", they can be consecutive in any order.

Specific OG question example can testify this better.
