1. a-b = odd
For a number to be odd for a difference,
there are two options possible Even - Odd = Odd - Even = Odd
In either case, a+b is always odd (Sufficient)

2. b = even

Case 1: a is even, a+b is even
Case 2: a is odd, a+b is odd (Insufficient) (Option A)

if a-b is odd means 1 is odd and other even, given that b Is even certifies a to be odd, so addition of odd +even if odd.
