smallest 7 digit number=1000000
greatest=9999999.
total 7 digit number=9999999-1000000+1=90000000
So now out of 9000000,half have sum as odd and half has sum as even.So 4500000 are having sum as odd.
so C is the answer

Total number of 7 digit integers 9999999-999999=9,000,000
Half of them have even sum and other odd sum.
( can ve verified in any consecutive series if even number of terms---
say... 11,12,13, 14 ===> 4 terms ....2 even sum & 2 odd sum
again 11,12,13......20 ==>10 terms ....5 even sum & 5 odd sum)
Hence, Odd sum = 9,000,000/2= 4,500,000
Ans C.

total count of 7 digit number =9999999-1000000+1=9000000...so every alternate number in the set will have a sum even or odd,so half the 7 digit numbers would have odd sum hence 9000000/2=4500000.Hence answer C

7 digit numbers are from 1000000 to 9999999.

First we need to find the total number of terms from 1000000 to 9999999.

(Last term - first term) +1 => (9999999 - 1000000) + 1 => 8999999 + 1 => 9000000

We know there are 5 odd integers and 5 even integers in every 10 numbers.

So we divide 9000000/2 = 4500000

Hence C
