    Then there was the trifle of your ambiguous apple question or should I
    say troll.

    Maybe it's nothing!

     
  5. I never asked the apple question, that was someone else. No wonder
    you're so mixed up, you can't even put a statement with the correct
    name!

    Zero is even.

    1. It is divisible by two without a remainder.
    2. It occurs between two odd integers.

  7. Exactly. And if I may expand on that:

    Remember that:
    even + even = even (eg: 2 + 4 = 6)
    and
    odd + even = odd (eg: 2 + 3 = 5)
    and
    odd + odd = even (eg: 3 + 5 = 8)


    Consider:
    0 + 2 = 2
    - Even result, so zero must be Even; e+e=e rule.
    But:
    0 + 1 = 1
    - Odd result, so 0 cannot be odd.
    - Follows the e+o=o rule, again showing 0 must be Even.

    What's that? Guess (on the basis that they're both GTM): Kelley's
    General Topology or Halmos's Measure Theory.
