Is the sum of 6 numbers odd?

(1) The product of four largest numbers is odd, and the product of two smallest numbers is even --> even if we consider all numbers to integers (which is not stated) it's still possible to have:
A. O*O*O*O=Odd and E*E=E --> (O+O+O+O)+(E+E)=Even;
B. O*O*O*O=Odd and E*O=E --> (O+O+O+O)+(E+O)=Odd.

Not sufficient.

(2) The sum of two smallest numbers is odd, and the sum of four largest numbers is even --> {sum of two smallest}=Odd and {sum of four largest}=Even --> {sum of all 6 numbers}={sum of two smallest}+{sum of four largest}=Odd+Even=Odd. Sufficient.

Answer: B.
