Check if K distinct array elements form an odd sum

Given an array A[] of size N, the task is to check if it is possible to get odd sum using K distinct elements from the array.
Examples: 

Input: N = 4, K = 2, A = {10, 19, 14, 14} 
Output: YES 
Explanation: 
19 + 14 = 33, which is odd
Input: N = 3, K = 3, A = {101, 102, 103} 
Output: NO 
Explanation: 
101 + 102 + 103 = 306, which is even 

Approach: 

EVEN + EVEN = EVEN
ODD  + ODD  = EVEN
EVEN + ODD  = ODD

Examples: 

  • 3 + 2 + 6 = 11 (odd)
  • 1 + 3 + 7 + 4 = 15 (odd)

Hence, follow the steps below to solve the problem:
