(1) The median of set A is positive
(2) The range of set A is less than the largest term in set A


Let the Nos be X, (X+1), ............... , (X+4) , .......................... , (X+10) {11 Consequtive no.}
Sum= 11X+55

Statement(1)- Median of A Positive= (X+4)>0 => X>-4
Therefore, X= -3,-2,-1,0,1,2..................Infinity
For any value of X from above, Sum=11X+55 is positive {Try for X=-3, sum=22}
Statement(2)- Range= (X+10)-X= 10
X+10>10=> X>0
So all no. are postive, therefore sum positive.

Ans. D- Both statements are sufficient individually.

From statement 1:
For stmtn 1 to be valid all the least range of integers can be from (-5 to 5) where median would be 0, so yes the sum of Set A would be positive always
sufficient

Frm 2:
For range to be < than largest term of Set A : all terms in set need to be +ve , sufficient else in case of -ve consective integers we would end up getting range < median...

sufficient

Given: A is a set of 11 consecutive integers.
Asked: Is the sum of the terms of set A positive?

(1) The median of set A is positive
If median is positive; the sum of the terms of set A will be positive since they are 11 consecutive integers
SUFFICIENT

(2) The range of set A is less than the largest term in set A
10 < largest term in set A
the sum of the terms of set A will be positive
SUFFICIENT

IMO D

(1) The median of set A is positive: sufic.

consecutive integers, median=mean, median>0, then mean>0;

(2) The range of set A is less than the largest term in set A: sufic.

range=largest-smallest, r=tn-a;
r=tn-a<tn…tn-tn<a…a>0; set is all positive: mean>0;
