Here G, H, I, J, and K are consecutive whole numbers. When is G× H× I > 12?

1. G ≥ 2
2. G is odd

St I
G ≥ 2
Let G=2, therefore H =3,I=4 and G*H*I = 2*3*4 =24 > 12
for all G≥2; G*H*I >12 ------- Sufficient

St II
G is odd
If G = 1, H=2, I=3 and G*H*I = 1*2*3 =3
If G = 3, H=4, I=5 and G*H*I = 3*4*5 =60 ---------Insufficient.

Hence Option A is correct.

1. G ≥ 2
2. G is odd

Have you transcribed the question correctly?
I ask because we are not told the order in which the consecutive numbers appear. Is G the smallest of them?
The GMAT will always avoid ambiguity with additional information.
Here's an example (official GMAT question):
- If a, b, and c are consecutive positive integers and a < b < c, which of the following must be true?

Without some additional information (like G<H<I<J< K), I'd say that statement 1 is not sufficient.

A few other "issues":
- not sure why the authors wrote "whole numbers" instead of "integers"
- "When is ...G× H× I > 12?" (why not just "Is G× H× I > 12"?). The word "when" changes the meaning of the target question.

Cheers,
Brent

Merging topics. Please refer to the discussion above.

Also, please note that this is a poor quality question, so you can ignore it.
