Consecutive numbers will always total an odd number.

Consecutive odd numbers or consecutive primes would be 5 and 7.

That doesn't work. The number has to be divisible by three. Any three consecutive numbers add up to a multiple of three.

Pick a number. Add or subtract 1 to or from it.

Although not specified as such, "consecutive" requires the numbers to be integers. Two pairs literally means four numbers but there are not four consecutive integers that add up to to 5280. 1318 + 1319 + 1320 + 1321 = 5278 and 1319 + 1320 + 1321 + 1322 = 5282. Four consecutive numbers must add up to an even number that is not a multiple of 4. If by two pairs, the question meant ONE pair (!!), again there is no answer since the sum of any pair of consecutive numbers must be an odd number.

There are no two consecutive numbers that equal 70 because the sum of any two consecutive numbers is an odd number.

I am not sure if any two consecutive numbers can add up to an even number.

No answer exists. Any 2 consecutive numbers will produce an odd sum.

There are no such numbers. If S is the sum of any 4 consecutive integers then S = 2 (mod 4) In other words, any four consecutive integers add up to an even number that is NOT dvisible by 4.

EVERY three consecutive numbers add to a multiple of 3: Proof: numbers are n, n + 1 and n + 2. The total is 3n + 3 or 3(n + 1) This means that for any three consecutive numbers, the total is 3 times the middle number.

Any 2 consecutive will always add up to an odd number and the number given is an even number

Defining "consecutive" as "following continuously in unbroken or logical sequence," it is possible to have many different types of consecutive things: consecutive days, months, odd numbers, even numbers, etc. The list you have is consecutive, they are consecutive multiples of ten.
