There is no concrete answer to this question. However, you can solve it algebraically. The next greater even number is two greater than x; therefore its value is x+2. The next greater odd number is one greater than x; therefore its value is x+1. You divide and get (x+2)/(x+1). You can't simplify this, so that's your answer.
