What is the greatest integer in a set of five different positive integers if 1 is the
smallest integer in the set?

(1) The average (arithmetic mean) of
all integers is 4 and the median of
the set is also 4.
(2) The set contains only 1 even
number.

What is the greatest integer in a set of five different positive integers if 1 is the
smallest integer in the set?

(1) The average (arithmetic mean) of
all integers is 4 and the median of
the set is also 4.

Possible sets(considering all elements as different positive integers, sum=20, and the 3rd term=4)
{1,2,4,6,7}
{1,2,4,5,8}
{1,3,4,5,7}
Greatest integer can be 7 or 8.
Not Sufficient.

(2) The set contains only 1 even
number.

Clearly insufficient.
Possible sets(considering all elements different +ves, only one element even and the smallest integer=1):
{1,3,5,7,8}
{1,3,4,5,7}
Not Sufficient.

Combing both(all different positive integers, middle number 4(only even in the set), sum=20);
{1,3,4,5,7}
Greatest integer is definitely 7.
Sufficient.

Ans: "C"

@fluke
Can you verify these two statements for me please?
1) Median and Mean of evenly spaced set of integers are equal --True.
2) if the median and mean are equal, set of integers can or cannot be evenly spaced -- True.

Thanks.

(1)
Sum of integers = 20

So sum of remaining numbers = 19

S = {1,2,4,6,7}

S = {1,3,4,5,7}

Not Sufficient

(2)
S = {1,2,3,5,7}

S = {1,2,4,5,7}

Not Sufficient

(1) + (2)

S = {1,3,4,5,7}

Greatest integer = 7

Answer - C

(1) The average (arithmetic mean) of all integers is 4 and the median of the set is also 4.
(2) The set contains only 1 even number.

Statement 1 alone is insufficient because many values are possible for the greatest integer such as 7 and 8.

Statement 2 alone is also insufficient because many values are possible for the greatest integer.

Combining 1 and 2, sufficient because the only possible value for the greatest integer is 7.
