2) There are 24 integers greater than x and less than y

What if;

1<N<1000----> Any 24 numbers between 1 and 1000 will also satisfy the second argument of the question.

Please help me to understand how the numbers are in consecutive order.


Hello

If you are taking X=1 and Y=1000, then there are not just '24' integers between them. Between 1 and 1000 there are '998' integers (2, 3, 4, ...999). So this example (of 1 and 1000) cannot be taken considering the second statement.

When the statement says, "there are 24 integers between X and Y", it means there are '24 integers only'. That is only possible if Y = X+25. And out of those 24 integers, 12 will be odd and 12 will be even (no matter whether X is odd or even, or whether Y is even or odd)

B is correct answer

Satatement 1 yields 4 different possibilities while statement 2 provides a single answer of 12 odd numbers (24/2).
