Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
U r correct. It can be 1 or 0 in each statement and both statements together.
Since we cant COME TO A CONCLUSION IF ITS EVEN(0) OR ODD(1) its INSUFF
Well my point exactly (although we come to a different conclusion at that). Considering that we don't really need a specific value in this question so long as we can determine whether N is even or not right?
A = Statement 1 is sufficient while Statement 2 is not sufficient. B = Statement 2 is sufficient while Statement 1 is not sufficient C = Statements 1 and 2 together are sufficient while NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient D = Both Statements 1 and 2 are sufficient (independent of the other) E = Together, Statements 1 and 2 are NOT sufficient.
The answer cannot be D because when Statement 1 is Insufficient, the only possible answer choices left is B, C or E. D is not even an option because A requires #1 to be sufficient and D requires #1 to be sufficient independently of #2.
#1 is insufficient because N^2 will only be equal to N when N = 0 or +1. Because of this, we do not know if N is even because 0 is even, but +1 is odd.
I believe the answer should be E because # is insufficient also.
N could be 1, 0 or even -1. Same thing as #1...even & odd possibilities means that we cannot give a definite answer.
Together will not help because we have 0 and 1 as options for both Statements.
Is integer integer N even?
1. N^2 = N 2. N = N^3
My answer is D but the answer from the system is E, how is this possible?
Both statement will give us 1 or 0 in which neither is even and it's sufficient to answer the problem.
Someone please enlighten me
