5. If m, p, and t are positive integers and m < p < t, is the product mpt an even integer?

Stat1
t – p = p - m
=> p =(m+t)/2
=> mpt = mt*(m+t)/2
NOT SUFFICIENT as we don't know whether m and t are odd or even

Stat2
t – m = 16
=> t = m+ 16
mpt = mp(m+16)
NOT SUFFICIENT as we don't know whether m and p are odd or even.

BOth together
we have
mpt = (m + 8) (m^2 + 16)
NOT SUFFICIENT as we don't know whether m is odd or even

So, Answer will be E
