(1) doesn't really tell us anything, but reiterate that x is even, butwe already knew that. Y could be even or odd. Insuf

(2) shows y must be even as 2x is even. Even + Even = Even. Suf

(1) 2y + x is even
(2) 2x + y is even

B

statement 1) 2y+x is even ==> ( 2y is even and x is even) or ( 2y is odd and x is odd ); but since x is even hence ( 2y is even and x is even) must be true
now 2y is even this does not tell us whether y is even or odd since 2y is always even irrespective of y even or odd ==> insuff

statement 2) 2x + y is even => y must be even because 2x is even. => suff.

IMO B.

1: 2y is even as 2y+x is even but y can be even or odd as multiplication with 2 makes it even. Hence insufficient.

2: y has to be even as 2x + y is even hence sufficient.

Its B.

So in this question we are given that x is even and we need to get if y is even or not.
Lets look at statements
Statement 1
2y+x is even
but 2y+x is always even irrespective of y being even/odd
hence not sufficient
statement 2
2x+y is even
hmm
y=> even =even => even
so y is even
hence sufficient.

Hence B
