    ANSWER- 1 2 3 4 5 9(rotated 6) and 7 8 9

    EXPLANATION-
    Sum of numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 is 45 ,
    So, numbers cant be split into 2 equal parts.

    Given that, we cant turn 9 upside down and make it 6
    but we can turn 6 to make it 9

    So,
    1+2+3+4+5+9(Rotated 6) =24
    7+8+9 = 24
    So, the two group of numbers are 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7,8,9
