To make it even, last digit must be 2 only
for the rest, _ _ _ _ 2
all possible = 4*3*2*1 = 24

I'd say 5*5*5*5 because 2 can be included as well

5 digit integer: a b c d e
e can have only 2 to make the numbers even.
so we can fill only abcd by integers 3, 5, 7, and 9. so they can be filled in 4! (or 24) ways since no repetation is allowed.

if repetation is allowed: abcde = 5x5x5x5x5 = 5^5.

if no repetition is allowed, given same other conditions, shouldn't it be 5^4 because the last digit must still be 2 only

so the answer to this question is 24.

_ _ _ _ _

in the last spot,we must have 2 to make the number even. in the other four spots, we can put any of the 4 remaining #s, but since repitition is not allowed, we have 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 x 1 = 24

if repetition is allowed, given same other conditions, = 5^4 because the last digit must be 2 only.
if repetation is allowed (I mean without any condition): abcde = 5x5x5x5x5 = 5^5.
