IMO E

St1 doesn’t tell about the numbers.
St2 doesn’t tell about the multiples being positive or negative

Combining-no info yet about the positive or negative
Hence E

Mean is the average and median is the central value.

1) elements are consecutive multiples of 2.
If the elements are in AP, the mean =median.

Say the number of elements are EVEN..
2,4,6,8
Mean = (2+4+6+8)/4=5..
Median=(4+6)/2=5..
Mean = median

Number of elements are odd
4,6,8
Mean=18/3=6
Median=6
Mean=Median

Ans is always NO

Sufficient

2) the sum of elements is 100.
Insufficient

A
