There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

Even with statements 1 and 2 together, we can never know if Z is actually an integer.

is there such a thing as an odd or even fraction? And if so, are there odd/even fractions at the level of math we're dealing with. If not, A must be suff

No, odds and evens are only for integers. While the question asks about whether Z is odd, statements 1 and 2 gives clue some fractions that contain z.

Statemnet 1 confirms that Z is indeed an integer, while statement 2 does not neccessarily indicate that Z is an integer, regardless whether odd or even.

My updated Answer: A

Crazy...it's like playing word games. Is Z odd AND integer?

(1) Z/3=Odd -> Z=3*Odd -> Z=Odd*Odd, so Z must be Odd. SUFF.

(2) 3Z=Odd -> Z=Odd/3. So Z could be 7/3 or 15/3, one is integer another one isn't. Or you can look at it as 3*(5)=Odd (yes, Z is an odd integer); but 3*(1/3) = Odd (no, Z is neither odd nor an integer). -___-
