An even number is one that when divided by 2 gives an integer. Now this questions becomes which is smaller, 0 or negative numbers. The number -2 is even since 2 divides it integrally. Is -2 less that 0? Many people say a number A is smaller than a number B is A is to the left of B on the number line. Certainly, that would make -2<0 and zero would not be the smallest even number. When we evaluate absolute value of 0, then we say that 0 is the smallest even number in the absolute value. Really, we don't know what is the smallest number but we say that - ∞ is a value smaller than any fixed bound, so we can't say exactly which is the smallest even number.

It is 2 which is also the only even prime number
