Hi,
the numbers from 546 to 705 will have equal EVEN and ODD numbers.. and 545 will make one ODD extra..
# of ODDs =$$\frac{705-545}{2} + 1 = 80+1=81$$......C

Assuming the lot of houses all have odd numbers on their doorplates and the odd numbers are consecutive, the number of odd numbers from 545 to 705, inclusive, is:

(705 - 545)/2 + 1 = 160/2 + 1 = 81
