D.

An even product hides the sign of the integers.

it may confuse. anyway OA is B

thre might be also an even number of odd integer, the product of which is odd.
i.e. -7*-9*-5*-1= 63*5 which is odd====4 numbers

this holds true also for -11*-9*-5*-7*-1====5 numbers

only the fact that the product is negative tells us that we must have an odd number of intgers
