For integers and x ,y x=y/6+1 . Is xy even?
1. y+1/5 = x
2 y/x is not odd

I dont think we need stmt 1 or 2 to solve it.

It can be solved from the stem itself.

what shld be the answer in such cases?

If the question is as above, yes. You are correct cuz y is always even and no matter the value of x, xy is always even.
