IMO, this question is about following instructions, logic, and not getting bamboozled into thinking this question is harder than it is.

Given conditions:

1) one number has to be a single digit (not very helpful - all answers have single-digit numbers)

2) ONLY one number in the group can be divisible by 3:

ELIMINATE Answers A, C, and D

A has (3, 24). C has (6, 9, 12). And D has (15, 18).

Only Answers B and E remain.

3) The number of flowers one of them bought was an even number.

Eliminate B. B's numbers are all odd. And E satisfies all conditions.

ANSWER E
