Option C.

Given: S is a set containing 8 different positive odd numbers
Easily inferred: T is a set containing 7 different odd numbers

(A) The range of T is even. - Always even, since it is a difference of two odd numbers
(B) The mean of S is even. - can be. suppose 8 numbers consist of 4 pairs of (16n-1,16n+1) for different values of n. Adding these will give a multiple of 16, which when divided by 8 (to arrive at mean), will give an even number
(C) The mean of T is even. - Cannot be. Mean = (sum of 7 odd numbers)/7 = Odd number/odd number thus cannot be even.
(D) The range of S is equal to the range of T.
(E) The median of T is equal to the mean of T
