Statement 1: there could be several combinations. Not Sufficient.

Statement 2: doesn’t tell you anything about all 5 integers. Not Sufficient.

Combined: doesn’t tell you anything new. We already know that if the 5 numbers are consecutive even integers, then the largest term will be 8 more than the smallest term.

#1
consecutive even integers would give us different avg value
insufficient
#2

smallest integer +8 = largest integer
different avg value

from 1&2
no info
IMO E

Question: What is the average of the 5 integers?

Statement 1: They are consecutive even integers.

For numbers forming an arithmetic Progression (A.P.) the Mean = Median = (First+Last term)/2

But we have no value of any terms of those 5 numbers hence

NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The smallest of the integers is 8 less than the largest of the five integers

This gives us the relationship of only two of these 5 integers hence

NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining the two statements
if a, b, c, d, e are the terms then

e = a+8 (because they are consecutive even numbers
But second statement also gives us the same information and we have no values out of those 5 integers hence

NOT SUFFICIENT

Answer: Option E
