If a number is a multiple of 6, then it must also be a multiple of 3 and it must be an even number. I have a number X which is a multiple of 3. I may assume that:
A. It must be an even number.
B. It may be an even number but doesn't have to be.
C. It cannot be an even number.
D. It cannot be a multiple of 6.
E. It can be a multiple of 6 or an even number, but not both.

A. It must be an even number - consider 9 - NO.
B. It may be an even number but doesn't have to be - pretty open-ended, but YES (consider 9, 12)
C. It cannot be an even number - consider 9 again - NO.
D. It cannot be a multiple of 6 - consider 12 - NO.
E. It can be a multiple of 6 or an even number, but not both - consider 12 again, NO.

A. It must be an even number=> must is too strong.
B. It may be an even number but doesn't have to be=> may be ok.
C. It cannot be an even number=> cannot be too strong.
D. It cannot be a multiple of 6=> cannot be too strong.
E. It can be a multiple of 6 or an even number, but not both=> can be ok, but cannot be both means cannot be a multiple of 6 and even integer. too strong too because all multiples of 6 are even integers.


B wins.

C. It cannot be an even number.
- Out.

D. It cannot be a multiple of 6.
- Can't tell

E. It can be a multiple of 6 or an even number, but not both.
- Out.

B it is.
