From S1:

x+2+x+3+x+4+x+5+x+6 = 0
As the numbers are consecutive, x+4th term has to be zero, means x = -4 or 5x+20 = 0, x = -4
Sufficient to calculate the sum.
Sufficient.

From S2:

Product of x+2 till x+6 is zero. Here any term any be zero.
Hence Insufficient.

A is the answer.

#1
sum of x+2 to x+6 = 5x+20
5x+20=0
x=-4
we can find sum of 9 integers
sufficient
#2
x+2... to x+6 product = 0
so any of x can be -ve integer . insufficient
IMO A
