if x is even, y can be anything..
x =2, y =3 --> odd
x =2, y = 4 --> even

x =2, y = 4 --> even


2*3 = 6 --> even

The rule says that the product is even if at least one of x and y is even.

So I would go with B.

You have to read the question carefully in this one. XY is a two digit number not a product of one another.

E


(1) LCM of X and Y is even
X = 2 , Y = 3 LCM 6 even but XY not even False

X = 2 Y= 4 LCM 4 even XY even true

so INsuff


(2) X is even

Insuff


taken together is also not suff cause

hence E

(1) Insufficient

Let X = 2 and Y = 3

The LCM(2, 3) = 6

Now, lets try the reversal: Let X = 3 and Y = 2

The LCM(2, 3) = 6

(2) Insufficient

Don't know what Y is.

I pick E.
