512

When 1 element selected = 10
When 3 elements selected = 10C3 = 120
When 5 elements selected = 10C5 = 252
When 7 elements selected = 10C7 = 120
When 9 elements selected = 10C9 = 10

Total = 512

I read "exclusive" as "inclusive".

So this should be

When 1 element selected = 8
When 3 elements selected = 8C3 = 56
When 5 elements selected = 8C5 = 56
When 7 elements selected = 8C7 = 8

Total = 128

I noticed that total numbers of subsets are 2^8 and half of these are with odd number of elements and half with even number of elements.
