1) If p,q and r are integers, is pq+r even?

1) p+r is even

2) q+r is add

M getting D

OA is different. Pls confirm if answer is not D

We want to know if pq+r is even

Statement 1) says p+r is even implying that p and r are either both odd or both even. When they are both even, then irrespective of q being even or odd, pq+r will be even. When they are both odd, depending on q, pq+r can be odd or even. So, insufficient

Statement 2) says q+r is odd, implying at least one of q or r is odd and the other one is even. When r is odd and q is even, pq+r is odd. When q is odd and r is even, pq+r is even or odd depending on value of p, so insufficient.

Combining the two, when p and r are even and hence q is odd, pq+r is even

when p and r are odd and hence q is even, pq+r is odd, so again insufficient

Answer E
