There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

but don't you think so that 0 is a neutral number...i.e neither even nor odd.

ZERO:

1. 0 is an integer.

2. 0 is an even integer. An even number is an integer that is "evenly divisible" by 2, i.e., divisible by 2 without a remainder and as zero is evenly divisible by 2 then it must be even.

3. 0 is neither positive nor negative integer (the only one of this kind).

4. 0 is divisible by EVERY integer except 0 itself.

I too fell for the mistake of forgetting about 0! Actually, I thought of it but did not think 0! existed and didn't know it was = 1.

Anyway, my actual question is about the structure of DS questions. While doing the problem, I thought Statement 1 was sufficient so I eliminated the possibility of the answer being choices B,C,E.

While analyzing statement 2, while it's obviously insufficient the statement made me double think if Statement 1 was sufficient given that x = 1 is not even. I know you should think of each statement individually, but in all DS questions I can think of, if one or more of the statements are sufficient then the two statements always confirm each other. In this scenario it didn't make sense to me that if Statement 1 were indeed sufficient, they wouldn't contradict the answer in Statement two. Does this actually hold true on the GMAT? In the future, if I'm in a situation like this where I see Statement 2 contradicting statement 1 (which I incorrectly thought was sufficient) can I use this as a sign to re-evaluate the first statement?

Yes. On the GMAT, two data sufficiency statements always provide TRUE information and these statements NEVER contradict each other or the stem.
