"If X is an integer, is Y an integer?

(1) The average (arithmetic mean) of X and Y is not an integer.

(2) X + Y = 2 (X - Y)
Statement 1 alone is sufficient but Statement 2 alone is NOT.
Statement 2 alone is sufficient but Statement 1 alone is NOT.
Statements 1 and 2 TOGETHER are sufficient but neither alone is.
EACH statement alone is sufficient,
NEITHER statement alone or combined is sufficient.

Insufficient.X and Y could be 1 and 2, for example.

Quote:
(2) X + Y = 2 (X - Y)

X+Y=2X-2Y
X+3Y=2X
X=3Y

Insufficient. If X is 1, Y is 1/3. If X is 3, Y is 1.

But, together, every combination of X and Y that satisfies condition 2 (examples):
X Y
3 1
6 2
9 3

Averages to an integer.

There are no (integer, integer) pairs that satisfy both conditions.

I say C.

Also, to satisfy condition 1, you need an even and an odd.

To satisfy condition 2, you need two odds or two evens.

No pair of integers can satisfy both conditions.

So I suppose that's a better shortcut.
