10k will be always even as 10 has 2 as one of its factors
if 10k+y is odd, then the only possible explanation is that y is odd

to get odd result out of 10k+y
y must be odd since in 10k whether k is odd or even reult is always even and as per condition to get an odd result by adding two number
E+O=O
So we must need Y an odd number

Since an even number times any number is even, we know that 10k must be even. Also, since an even number plus an odd number is odd, we know that y must be odd.

Answer: C
