If n is an integer, which of the following must be odd?

A. n^2....will depend on n.. if n is odd answer will be odd and if n is even, answer will be even.
B. n^3..will depend on n.. if n is odd answer will be odd and if n is even, answer will be even.
C. n+3..will depend on n.. if n is odd answer will be even and if n is even, answer will be odd.
D. n-4..will depend on n.. if n is odd answer will be odd and if n is even, answer will be even.
E. 3-2n....2n will always be even so 3-even =odd-even=odd

E

to get odd ;
odd + even = odd
and odd-even = odd
only two such conditions exists
so out of given options we can say 3-2n will be odd always
IMO E
