### Question

You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read the statements and give your answer.

Which one of the integers a, b, c, d and e are odd numbers?

- a, b, c, d and e are consecutive numbers.
- c is an even 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**

Using statement I alone, it can't be said definitely which of the integers out of a, b, c, d, e will be odd numbers. However, using statement II with statement I, we can find that if c is even, b and d will be odd.
