A department of motor vehicles asks visitors to draw numbered tickets from a dispenser so that they can be served in order by number. Six friends have graduated from truck-driving school and go to the department to get commercial driving licenses. They draw tickets and find that their numbers are a set of evenly spaced integers with a range of 10. Which of the following could NOT be the sum of their numbers?
A) 1,254
B) 1,428
C) 3,972
D) 4,316
E) 8,010
Given the range is 10
so let's assume that smallest number is x , therefore the greatest number will be x+10
also the number are evenly spaced and we need four numbers in between x and x+10, therefore x ,x+2,x+4,x+6,x+8,x+10
x+x+2+x+4+x+6+x+8+x+10 = 6x + 30 = sum of the all six numbers
Now working with each of the given option, we will find each of the number will satisfy the above equation except D
