Tarek, this is the second question you are posting with the wrong OA, can you say the source of these questions?

There's no OE. I also agree with all of you that the OA should be B. There's definitely a typo with the OA. Thanks!

A Couple of Rules

Even Integer x (E/O) = Even
Odd Integer x (E/O) = Even or Odd
Even (+/-) Even = Even
Even (+/-) Odd = Odd
Odd (+/-) Odd = Even
No division here so we won't go through

As above we are looking for an example where we have an even +/- Odd.

Quick Scan shows B - Not cannot be D since the above rule shows could be even or odd.
