I think it is A as median is the midpoint of series arranged in increasing order and as the spacing is equal there are equal no. of -ve and +ve integers to the left and right of 0 and the net sum of these integers is 0 e.g. -2,-1,0,1,2,

Agree it's A.

If the median is 0 and the integers are evenly spaced, statement 1 will suffice.

hey it cant be A

u r assuming that if 0 is the median the set shld be -2 -1 0 1 2

it could be -10 -5 0 5 10 or -8 -4 0 4 8 .... its not mentioned consecutive numbers

but from the statement B we know tat the range is 4 so -2-1 0 1 2

so the answer is C

I hope that helps

And the sum of this would be? :) It will always be 0 if median of 5 evenly spaced number is 0
A is sufficient
