The definition of even and odd covers all integers such that :
(a) Any number which, when divided by 2, leaves a remainder 0 is EVEN.
(b) Any number which, when divided by 2, leaves a remainder 1 is ODD.

Thus 0, being an integer and satisfying condition (a), is an EVEN number.

I guess the easier way to do this would be.

400 numbers between - 200 & 600
Out of which half would be even, half odd.
Number of odd = 200. Of this.. the one with even tenth digit would be half again. hence 100.

A. 20
B. 25
C. 100
D. 150
E. 200

The hundreds digit can take 4 values: 2, 3, 4 and 5;
The tens digit can take 5 values: 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8;
The units digit can take 5 values: 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9;

Total: 4*5*5=100.

This has got nothing to do with the question, however according to the Sum formula aren't there 399 numbers between 200 and 600, i.e. 599-201 = 398 + 1 = 399????

It depends whether we include 200 and 600.

There are 401 integers from 200 to 600, both inclusive;
There are 400 integers from 200 to 600, including 600 or 200.
There are 399 integers from 200 to 600, both exclusive.

Hope it's clear.

I guess asax meant that there are 400 integers from 201 to 600, both inclusive.

even when you exclude 200 and 600 there will be 200 odd numbers and 100 out of which will have tenths digit as even
