Hallo face,
Consecutive integers are:
N, N+1, N+2, N+10 then
from A) 9N+36=63 N=3
from B) 9N+54=81 N=3
so D) seems correct IMO

Fellow GMATers,

N, N-1 , N-2.....

I think still we can determine!

The numbers are arranged in reverse order, so it can still be determined. Am I right?

Here is where I differ...kindly point out the flaw..I can't spot one :(

If the numbers are x, x+1, x+2.....then statement I gives us....
(9x + 36)/9 = 7 => x = 3
and the average of 11 numbers is ( 11(3) + 55 )/11 = 8.

If the numbers are x,x-1,x-2.....then statement I gives us....
(9x - 36)/9 = 7 => x = 11
and the average of 11 numbers is ( 11(11) - 55 )/11 = 6.

Thus, we get two different values and hence A is INSUFF IMHO and similarly B is INSUFF.

Your reasoning is flawless IMO
possible sets
3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13
11,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
The average for first 9 terms for both is 7 so A) is insufficient and as you mentioned B) is also insufficient by the same reasoning.
Then from both statements togehter seems that only one set of numbers can be determined.
Good reasoning Ihotseface :)

Actually, I meant the same, that the value can still be determined, thus D can't be the answer. Sorry for putting it in wrong way :cry:

As I know in such type of Q GMAT always use increasing order.
Am I right? :?

Can anybody explain this line pls?

(9x + 36)/9 = 7 => x = 3

My expln: (Assuming increasing order)
stmt 1: Since the nos are consecutive 7 is the 5th element. For 11 numbers, the average should be the 6th number. That is 8.

Stmt2:
Same logic as above

Consecutive integers are integers n1 and n2, such that n2-n1=1 , i.e., n2 follows immediately after n1.

If the Sequence is in decreasing order.. then n2 - n1 = -1... so by definition they are not consecutive.

If I'm wrong, somebody please let me know.

I concurr with RAO ... the defination of CONSECUTIVE INTEGER is the integers that follows in sequence,each number being one greater than the previous number ,represented by n,n+1,n+2 .....where n is any number ...

Hence the answer for the question is D .
