(1) x·y is even.

(2) x=6y


(1) tells us either x is even and y is odd OR y is even and x is odd OR both are even...not sufficient

(2) x = even * y...x will always be even...sufficient

(1) x·y is even.

(2) x=6y


Statement 1
- \(X*Y = even\), either X or Y is even; or both X and Y are even.
- NOT SUFFICIENT, X can be even or odd.

Statement 2
- \(x=6y\) --> \(x=2*3*y\).
- Any numbers multiple of 2 is even. Therefore, X must be even.
- SUFFICIENT

B.

is x = even,
Statement 1 : x*y = even can mean that either x or y can be even. hence insufficient.
Statement 2 : x=6y, or x=2*3y which is of 2n format and hence an even number. hence sufficient.
so answer is B
