mean(P)>mean(Q)

1) P has even consecutive number, Q has odd consecutive number
In sufficient, P can be 2,4,6 and Q can be either 11,13,15 or 1,3,5

2) median (Q) > mean (P)
alone not sufficient

Togather!

if total number is odd
consecurive number median is equal to mean
eg. 1,3,5 =>(median, mean)=(3,3)

even for total number is even
median = mean
eg. 1,3,5,7 =>(4,4)

so median(Q)>mean(P)
and both are consecutive numbers
mean(Q)>mean(P)

sufficient

I concur. Very good explanation btw.
