### Question

The following question consists of a question followed by two statements labeled I and II. You have to decide whether the data given in the statement (s) is /are sufficient for answering the question.

What will come in place of c in the series a, b, c, d, e?

- a, b, c, d, e, are five consecutive even numbers.
- Common difference between two consecutive numbers is 2 and a is the second smallest natural number.

**A**

if data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question.

**B**

if data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.

**C**

if data either in statement I alone or in the statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.

**D**

if data in both the statements I and II together are needed to answer the question.

**Soln.**

**Ans: d**

Smallest natural number is 1, so a is 2. So b is 4 and c is 6. With the combinations of two statements, it is clear that number 6 will come in place of c.
