(1) n(n + 2) is even
(2) n(n + 3) is even


we have to find out weather n is even or not.

statement 1: n(n+2) is even. only even value of n makes it even. suppose, n=2 . 2(2+2)=8 but odd value . suppose n is 3. so, 3(3+2)=15. so any odd integer won't meet the condition stated in statement 1. sufficient.

statement 2: n+3 can be even , can be odd. it is dependent on the value of n. regardless of the situation statement 2 always gives us even. thus it's insufficient.

so, Answer is A. Statement 1 alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Given : n is an Integer

Question: Is n an EVEN Integer?

Statement 1: n(n + 2) is even

but n and n+2 have to be two consecutive even integers for this to be true hence n must be an even integer

n = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 ... etc.

SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: n(n + 3) is even

i.e. either n is even or n+3 is even
therefore n may be any number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... etc.
NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining the two statements

Even after combining the two statements we find out that n may be any even integer and n+3 is odd for any even value of n hence
n = 2, 4, 6, 8 ... etc

NOT SUFFICIENT

AnsweR: Option A
