# Check if its possible to make sum of the array odd with given Operations

• Last Updated : 22 Dec, 2022

Given an array arr[], the task is to check if it is possible to make the sum of array odd such that any two indices i and j can be chosen and arr[i] can be set equal to arr[j] given that i != j
Examples:

Input: arr[] = { 5, 4, 4, 5, 1, 3 }
Output: Yes
Explanation:
The sum of the array is 22. Put arr[0] = arr[1] where i=0 and j=1. The sum of this new array is 21 which is odd.
Input: arr[] = { 2, 2, 8, 8 }
Output: No
Explanation:
Sum of the array is 20.
The sum of the array cannot change to odd as all the elements are even. Adding even number to an even number always gives an even result.

Approach: The idea is to find the sum of all the elements in the array and simultaneously checking the number of even and odd numbers present in the array. If the sum is even, then one of the even numbers can be replaced with an odd number thereby making the sum of the array odd. If there are no odd elements in the array, then the sum of the array cannot be made odd.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 // C++ program to check if the array // with odd sum is possible #include using namespace std;   // Function to check if the // sum of the array can be made odd. bool isOdd(int arr[], int n) {     int l, r, flag = 0, flag1 = 0, sum = 0;       // Find sum of all elements and increment     // check for odd or even elements in the array     // so that by changing ai=aj,     // the sum of the array can be made odd     for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {         sum += arr[i];         if (arr[i] % 2 == 0 && flag == 0) {             flag = 1;             l = arr[i];         }         if (arr[i] % 2 != 0 && flag1 == 0) {             r = arr[i];             flag1 = 1;         }     }       // If the sum is already odd     if (sum % 2 != 0) {         return true;     }       // Else, then both the flags should be checked.     // Here, flag1 and flag represent if there is     // an odd-even pair which can be replaced.     else {         if (flag1 == 1 && flag == 1)             return true;         else             return false;     } }   // Driver code int main() {     int ar[] = { 5, 4, 4, 5, 1, 3 };     int n = sizeof(ar) / sizeof(ar[0]);     bool res = isOdd(ar, n);       if (res)         cout << "Yes" << endl;     else         cout << "No" << endl;     return 0; }

## Java

 // Java program to check if the array // with odd sum is possible import java.io.*; class GFG {           // Function to check if the     // sum of the array can be made odd.     static boolean isOdd(int []arr, int n)     {         int l, r, flag = 0, flag1 = 0, sum = 0;               // Find sum of all elements and increment         // check for odd or even elements in the array         // so that by changing ai=aj,         // the sum of the array can be made odd         for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {             sum += arr[i];             if (arr[i] % 2 == 0 && flag == 0) {                 flag = 1;                 l = arr[i];             }             if (arr[i] % 2 != 0 && flag1 == 0) {                 r = arr[i];                 flag1 = 1;             }         }               // If the sum is already odd         if (sum % 2 != 0) {             return true;         }               // Else, then both the flags should be checked.         // Here, flag1 and flag represent if there is         // an odd-even pair which can be replaced.         else {             if (flag1 == 1 && flag == 1)                 return true;             else                 return false;         }     }           // Driver code     public static void main (String[] args)     {         int ar[] = { 5, 4, 4, 5, 1, 3 };         int n = ar.length;         boolean res = isOdd(ar, n);               if (res == true)             System.out.println("Yes");         else             System.out.println("No");       } }   // This code is contributed by AnkitRai01
