(1) c is odd. (2) Only one of the integers is even
New question Given, a,b, and c are positive integers. Question stem:Is ab+c an odd integer? st1: c is odd So, when ab=Even , ab+c=Even+odd=Odd but, when ab=Odd, ab+c=Odd+odd=Even So, insufficient. st2:Only one of the integers is even when a=even & b,c=odd; ab+c=even+odd=odd when b=even & a,c=odd; ab+c=even+odd=odd when c=even & a,b=odd; ab+c=odd+even=odd So, sufficient. Ans. (B)

(1) c is odd. (2) Only one of the integers is even
New question a,b,c > 0 Is (ab + c)  odd ? If ab  odd & c  even, then (ab + c)  odd If ab  even & c  odd, then (ab + c)  odd If ab  odd, then a  odd & b  odd If ab  even, then a or b or both  even Statement 1: c is odd ab can be odd or even & hence (ab + c) can be even or odd. Statement 1 alone is Not Sufficient. Statement 2: Only one of a, b, c is even If c  even, then ab  odd, hence (ab + c)  odd If b  even, then ab  even & c  odd, hence (ab + c)  odd If a  even, then ab  even & c  odd, hence (ab + c)  odd Statement 2 is Sufficient. Answer B. Thanks, GyM

1. Not sufficient. We do not know anything about a and b
2. a or b even  even + odd = odd C even  odd + even = odd. Sufficient
Answer (B)

New question Hi chetan2u, Kindly provide the OA. It still displays a question mark(?) in my error log. Thanking you.

(1) c is odd. (2) Only one of the integers is even
New question probable combination : a = odd b = odd c = even or a = odd / even b = odd / even c = odd. Note: odd + even = odd Statement 1 : c is odd. C could be odd . In this case ab has to be even. No information about a or b. NOT sufficient. Statement 2 : Among the 3 integers 1 is even. It means rest of the 2 are odd. It can be calculated as follows: If a = even , ab is even. C is odd. So, ab + c = odd. If c = even , ab is odd. Even + odd = odd. Sufficient. Thus the best answer is B.
