1)
-12 , -11...... -3
-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6
insuffcient
2)
-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4
-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6
insuffcient
combined
same as (2)

E.

Stmt 1: All the integers in set can be smaller than -3. In this case, S will not have 5. Or, the set can have the starting integer as -3. In this case, S will have 5. Hence, insufficient.

Stmt 2: Integer 4 can be the last integer in S. Hence, 5 will not be in S. Or, 4 can be the starting integer and 5 will be in S. Hence, insufficient.

Combining the two also will give two different results.
