C.
1: if the set consists: -2, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16. so range = 18
if the set consists: -6, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16. so range = 22

2: if the set consists: 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, and 28. so range = 18
if the set consists: -10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, and 28. so range = 38

1 and 2: if the set consists: -10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, and 26 so range = 36

I get C as well. I didn't much testing, just kinda visualized it.

Together the least negative number of the set could be -10. The least positive then could be 19.

From this the range is greater than 20. 19-(-10)= 29.

1. we can have 9 negative numbers, 1 positive. or 3 negative 7 positive or so on

I think it is C

The diff will atleast be 20 using any combination.

The higest negative is -10 and the lowest positive is 10

does it say a certain consecutive integers in the set.
if we think that integers are consecutive even then yep it is C.
but it doesn say anything about that consecutiveness. and it can be -20, -16,-4, 0 .... 40 or so.. cannot we have the set like that

C.

Together if the product has to be negative then there need to be at least one positive, and if they have to have 2 digits, the range will be larger than 20

-10 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26

I think its clear E. Unless the set is in arithmetic progression.

Answer A.

Stat 1: Since product is -ve, 0 cannot be part of the even integers. Also, there needs to be an odd number of -ve integers.

Eg: -2, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18; range = 20
If we increase on the positive side or decrease on the -ve side, the range will only increase (that is become greater than 20). Whether the even integers and consecutive or not has no bearing on this fact.

Sufficient.

Stat 2:
if the set consists: 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, and 28. so range = 18
if the set consists: -10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, and 28. so range = 38

It is a good one :)

agree it is A.

never forget about zero....it reminds itself.

Given info in the stem and 1st statement range can be either equal to 20 or more than 20.

good jod!!
