(A) n+1 (B) n+2 (C) 2n (D) 2n +1 (E) n^2

Since n is an integer, it can be EVEN or ODD. But any integer when multiplied by 2 is even. For example, 3 * 2 = 6 (even) The rule is: EVEN * ODD = EVEN EVEN * EVEN = EVEN ODD * ODD = ODD

A) we cant say as it depends if n is odd or even B) same as A) C) Even as n is multiplied by 2 D) It is ODD as EVEN+1 = ODD E) depends if n is even or odd.

I thought that an integer could be 0. If that is the case, then 2*(0), would equal 0, which is not equal an even number. Thus, it does not answer the question. Can someone please clarify? Thanks.

Can you please clarify. My understanding is that 0 is an integer. If that the case you cant say any integer multiplied by an even number equals an even number. Because 0 multiplied by an even number equals 0, which is not an even number.

Im wondering if this question is erroneous. Shouldnt the question state any "if n is a positive or negative integer..."?

Zero is an even integer. Zero is nether positive nor negative, but zero is definitely an even number.

An even number is an integer that is "evenly divisible" by 2, i.e., divisible by 2 without a remainder and as zero is evenly divisible by 2 then it must be even (in fact zero is divisible by every integer except zero itself).
