Straight C

Product of 2 even Number is an even number

Further sum of an even number and an odd number is always an Odd number .

Hence answer is undoubtedly C.

With questions like this, we can apply RULES related to odds and evens (as skywalker18 did), or we can just PLUG IN an even value for x.
The easiest value to plug in is 0

(A) 3(0) + 2 = 2 EVEN - ELIMINATE A
(B) 7(0) = 0 EVEN - ELIMINATE B
(C) 8(0) +5 = 5 ODD. DONE!!!
Answer: C

For "kicks" let's keep going (although, on test day, we would select C and move onto the next question.

(D) 0^2 = 0 EVEN - ELIMINATE D
(E) 0^3 = 0 EVEN - ELIMINATE E

Cheers,
Brent

Option C

x is an Even integer. Odd: O, Even: E & Fraction: F

(A) 3x + 2 = 3*E + 2 = E + 2 =E
(B) 7x =7*E = E
(C) 8x +5 = 8*E + 5 = E + 5 = O
(D) x^2 = E^2 = E
(E) x^3 = E^3 = E
