(1) The difference between the smallest number in the set and the middle number is equal to the difference between the largest number and the middle number.
(2) n = 3


Statement 1: if the set is {-1,0,1,1,3}, then 1-(-1)=3-1 but the median is 1 and the average is 0.8. So we have a NO

but if the set is {1,2,3}, then we have a Yes. Insufficient

Statement 2: if we have {1,2,3}. We have a yes but if we have {1,2,9}, then we have a NO. Insufficient

Combining 1 & 2 we know the set has only 3 numbers and Middle-Lowest=Largest-Middle, so the set is an AP series.

In an AP series, with odd number of elements, Median = Mean. Sufficient

Option C
