Even and Odd Numbers An even number is an integer that is "evenly divisible" by 2, i.e., divisible by 2 without a remainder. An even number is an integer of the form , where is an integer. An odd number is an integer that is not evenly divisible by 2. An odd number is an integer of the form , where is an integer.

Zero is an even number.

Can u please correct me on these: 1) Zero is not a positive nor a negative number 2) Zero is an Integer 3) Zero is an even Integer 4) Zero is not an odd integer

Are any of the above statements wrong ?

Hello Bunuel,

Can you please tell me if "0" is a positive even integer or not.

The notes of GMAT Club Math book does say that 0 is an even positive integer, but in this question, we again differ with it.

Can you please clarify this doubt of mine. Appreciate it

Nowhere it's said that 0 is positive!

Again: zero is nether positive nor negative even integer.

As for point 4: 0 it's even, thus naturally it's not odd. _________________

This is my first QOTD and I'm a total noob. Why are the answer choices for A, B, C, D & E not posted with each Quant question?

Hi, and welcome to GMAT Club.

This is a data sufficiency question. Options for DS questions are always the same.

The data sufficiency problem consists of a question and two statements, labeled (1) and (2), in which certain data are given. You have to decide whether the data given in the statements are sufficient for answering the question. Using the data given in the statements, plus your knowledge of mathematics and everyday facts (such as the number of days in July or the meaning of the word counterclockwise), you must indicate whether—

A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked. B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked. C. BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked. D. EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked. E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked, and additional data specific to the problem are needed.

K! Seriously I need some enlightenment as I am totally lost here.

When I see a absolute variable I create 2 equations and we are given that R is integer and | R | = R

I read it as Can you find integer(s) such that R = R and -R = R

For all integers positive and negative I can say R is not equal to -R except for 0

0 is the integer that satisfies both R = R and -R = R

0 is neither +ve nor -ve. Going back to the Q Is R positive? NO

I felt that its sufficient and chose B.

Can some one explain where I am going wrong?

|R|=R

one solution for this is R=0 other solutions when R>0 R=R So R is +ve when R<0 R=-R --> invalid so R can't be -ve

So all together two solutions R=0 or R is +ve

Is R Positive? No when R=0 Is R Positive? Yes when R is +ve

insuffcient.

Now I see what I am doing differently. When I look at |R| = R and consider the two equations I am considering that both the cases of R = R and R = -R needs to be satisfied. What needs to be checked is whether I arrive at same answer in all three cases.

Seemed really easy to lead to B. I made the silly mistake and did not consider 0 for the statement (ii). Realized my mistake and learnt from it. _________________
