Given an array **arr[]** and a number **K**. The task is to find the count of the element having odd and even number of the set-bit after taking XOR of **K** with every element of the given **arr[]**.

**Examples:**

Input:arr[] = {4, 2, 15, 9, 8, 8}, K = 3Output:Even = 2, Odd = 4Explanation:

The binary representation of the element after taking XOR with K are:

4 ^ 3 = 7 (111)

2 ^ 3 = 1 (1)

15 ^ 3 = 12 (1100)

9 ^ 3 = 10 (1010)

8 ^ 3 = 11 (1011)

8 ^ 3 = 11 (1011)

No of elements with even no of 1’s in binary representation : 2 (12, 10)

No of elements with odd no of 1’s in binary representation : 4 (7, 1, 11, 11)

Input:arr[] = {4, 2, 15, 9, 8, 8}, K = 6Output:Even = 4, Odd = 2

**Naive Approach:** The naive approach is to take bitwise XOR of **K** with each element of the given array **arr[]** and then, count the set-bit for each element in the array after taking XOR with **K**.

**Time Complexity:** O(N*K)

**Efficient Approach:**

With the help of the following observation, we have:

For Example:

If A = 4 and K = 3

Binary Representation:

A = 100

K = 011

A^K = 111

Therefore, the XOR of numberA(which has an odd number of set-bit) with the numberK(which has an even number of set-bit) results in an odd number of set-bit.And If A = 4 and K = 7

Binary Representation:

A = 100

K = 111

A^K = 011

Therefore, the XOR of numberA(which has an odd number of set-bit) with the numberK(which has an odd number of set-bit) results in an even number of set-bit.

From the above observations:

- If
**K**has an odd number of set-bit, then the count of elements of array**arr[]**with even set-bit and odd set-bit after taking XOR with**K**, will be same as the count of even set-bit and odd set-bit int the array before XOR. - If
**K**has an even number of set-bit, then the count of elements of array**arr[]**with even set-bit and odd set-bit after taking XOR with**K**, will reverse as the count of even set-bit and odd set-bit in the array before XOR.

**Steps**:

- Store the count of elements having even set-bit and odd set-bit from the given array
**arr[]**. - If
**K**has odd set-bit, then the count of even and odd set-bit after XOR with K will be the same as the count of even and odd set-bit calculated above. - If
**K**has even set-bit, then the count of even and odd set-bit after XOR with K will be the count of odd and even set-bit calculated above.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

` ` `// Function to store EVEN and odd variable ` `void` `countEvenOdd(` `int` `arr[], ` `int` `n, ` `int` `K) `

` ` ` ` `// Count the set bit using `

` ` `int` `x = __builtin_popcount(arr[i]); `
` ` `if` `(x % 2 == 0) `

` ` `} `
` ` ` ` `int` `y; `
` ` ` ` `// Count of set-bit of K `
