K=(X^3)(Y^2)(Z), X, Y and Z represent three different prime number, is K an odd number?

1). X, Y, and Z>5
2). X+Y+Z=odd

D.

Stmt 1. All three are odd. So, looking at K, any ODD X ODD will be ODD, so:
K = (ODD)(ODD)(ODD) = ODD

Stmt 2. We know that if 2 is one of the prime numbers used for X, Y, or Z, then it would add to an EVEN number. This is not the case. X, Y, and Z must be prime numbers greater than 2, so ODD + ODD + ODD = ODD. So all three are ODD and then we're back to K = (ODD)(ODD)(ODD) = ODD

Agreed its D...

Essentially both rules out the possibility of 2!
