Let m = 4 and v = 3

Always remember to check all the values, if in some case you find 2 options satisfying the values take another value and we should be good.

4>3>0, here the number of even integers less than m and greater than v = 0

Put back the values in the answer options

We can get a zero from B and D, Now we will to test for some other value for m and v

m = 8 v = 1

8>1>0, number of even integers less than m and greater than v = 3

(8-1-1)/2 = 3

D says there are 6 such values

So B wins.

KanishkM , with those choices, we also get a zero from option D.

KanishkM - mmm, not exactly.
Your reasoning is really solid —including the part
in which you tell us, correctly, that we should check each option. :-D

No matter. Mistakes are how we learn.

simply plugin m=6 and v= 3

4 ie. 1 digit even possible >3 <6 so
IMO B
