M is a set of consecutive EVEN integers.

we are asked to determine whether 0 is in the set M.

Statement 1:

-6 is in the set.

may be -6 is the the highest integer of set M. NOT integer.

Statement 2:

-2 is in the set. The same as statement 1.

Combining both statements:

if we consider -2 us the highest integer of the set and -6 also falls in the set automatically. So, 0 may be or may not be the part of set M.

The best answer is E.
