The integers on a Number Line always alternate... odd, even, odd, even, etc. For example: -3 = odd -2 = even -1 = odd 0 = even 1 = odd 2 = even Etc.

PLEASE CLARIFY And if you're curious, you can think of the definition of an even number as any 'n' that satisfies n = 2k, where k is an integer. If k = 0, then n = 0, and thus 0 is even. _________________ Veritas Prep | GMAT Instructor Veritas Prep Reviews Save$100 off any live Veritas Prep GMAT Course

Though zero is neither positive nor negative, zero is even - important number property to file away!
