From statement 1:

a+b is even,
Odd+Odd = Even
Even+Even = Even
If c is Odd then a+b+c is Odd
If c is Even then a+b+c is Even
Insufficient.

From statement 2:

a + c is even
Odd+Odd = Even
Even+Even = Even
If b is Odd then a+b+c is Odd
If b is Even then a+b+c is Even
Insufficient.

Combining both:
a + b is even and a + c is even
Consider a =3, b = 5 and c = 7.
a+b = 8 = even.
a+c = 3+7 = 10 = even.
But a+b+c = 15 = odd.
Consider a =2, b = 4 and c = 6.
a+b = 6 = even.
a+c = 8 = even.
But a+b+c = 12 = even.
Insufficient.

Hence E is the answer.

(1) a + b is even
(2) a + c is even


Question : is a+b+c even

Statement 1: a+b is even
even + even or odd +odd
(a= E, b=E or a=O, b = O ; No idea about c)
NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2 : a+c is even
even + even or odd +odd
(a= E, c=E or a=O, c = O ; No idea about b)
NOT SUFFICIENT

Combined :
From statement 1, if a=E, b = E.. also if a=E, from statement 2, c= E
So, a+b+c = E

From statement 1, if a=O, b = O.. also if a=E, from statement 2, c= O
So, a+b+c = O
NOT SUFFICIENT

Answer E

(1) a + b is even
(2) a + c is even


from 1:
a+b would be even ; if both a & b are even or both a,b are odd, value of c is not given if c is odd then a+b+c would be odd else if c is even then a+b+c would be even
in sufficient

From 2:
a+c is even: again both a& c can be either odd or even, b is not sure whether its even or odd so a+b+c can be either even or odd
insufficient

From 1& 2:
value of a,b,c are not clear whether all are even or odd so IMO E would be correct.
