if you take 0, 2 and 4

0*2*4=0

wouldn't the answer choice be C considering 0 as even?

you are right study ....

Is a*b*c divisible by 24 ?

1. a, b, and c are consecutive even integers

2. a*b is divisible by 12

24 = 2*2*2*3 .. so we need at least one 3 and three 2s for abc to be divisible by 24 ...

(1) You proved that statement 1 is insuff

(2) a*b is divisible by 12 ... ab could be 12 or 24 or any 12x (where x is an integer)

to ensure abc is divisible by 24, we need to make sure that c is some even number. However statement 2 does not restrict the value of C. it can be ANYTHING (even some random fraction). Statement 2 is insuff...

Combined .... a,b,c are consecutive even numbers and a,b is divisible by 12 ...

so a*b can be ==> 2*6 ( that would make c =4) ===> abc is divisible by 24

so a*b can be ==> 4*6 ( that would make c =2 or c=8) ===> abc is divisible by 24

there is no case where c could be 0.

Answer has to be C.
