# A game for two players. First, each has to decide whether he wants odd number or even number. Then both raises some fingers of one hand. If the sum is odd, the one who chose odd at the beginning wins; if it is even, the one who chose even wins. In this game, which is the better choice at the beginning, odd or even?

Answer :

Let us suppose who so ever wins gets point equal to the total sum of both players fingers.

There are two ways of playing, one who choose odd raises an odd number of fingers and one who choose even raises an even number of fingers or vice – a – versa.

There can be chances when both raises an odd or even.

So, in long run, odd is up to 6 points in 20 games.

∴ Choosing the odd would be a better option.
