Official Solution:

S1 + S2 is not sufficient. Consider \(x = 3\), \(y = 4\), \(z = 5\) (the answer is YES) and \(x = 5\), \(y = 6\), \(z = 7\) (the answer is NO).

Answer: E


Hi Bunuel,

345 is not divisible by 12 right?

I think C is OK.

xyz means x*y*z.

Bunuel

I have a general question that popped up in my mind because of this question.

In this case, is it safe to assume that 'x' will always be the smallest integer when we say that x,y,z are consecutive integers (Statement 1) ?
Or, can we assume 'z' or 'y' the smallest too ?

Thinking in this way for statement 2, can we take, y=1, x=2, and z=3 ? (x and z are prime numbers)
Using statement 2, we get the value of xyz/12 NOT EQUAL to an integer and makes option C as the final answer to the question.

Please assist.

No, you cannot assume that x<y<z if you are not explicitly told that. But the answer is not C because no matter whether x<y<z or not, you can get a NO as well as an YES answer to the question asked (check examples in the solution).

Thanks a lot for the prompt reply.

Hi bunuel,
Sorry that i wqs not specific in asking my doubt. As 12 is an integer, whats wrong in rephrasing the question as follows: Is xyz=12*int=int i.e is xyz an integer?

By doing so Answer would be A.Could u explain why the question should not be rephrased this way?

xyz could be an integer and not a multiple of 12. So, the question should be rephrased as written in my previous post.
