]X, Y, Z are real numbers. What is the remainder when X*Y*Z is divided by 12?

(1) X, Y, Z are consecutive positive integers.
Let the numbers in the order X,Y,Z..
Atleast one will be multiple of 2 and exactly one will be multiple of 3...
So it is surely a multiple of 6, but 12 is not necessary.
If Y is even and a multiple of just 2, answer will be NO. For example 5,6,7.
But otherwise it will be YES, for example 3,4,5 or 6,7,8 and so on
Insufficient

(2) Y - X = Z - Y
This just tells us that Y is the arithmetic mean of the three numbers..
Insufficient

Combined..
The I go if statement I still remains the same..
The order of number is X,Y,Z and the three are consecutive
Insufficient

#1:
x,y,x can be 13,14,15 remainder yes , 11,12,13 no remainder ; in sufficein

#2:
y-x=z-y
2y= z+x
y=x+z/2
y=mean /avg of x & z
in sufficeint

IMO E
