An evil number is a non-negative number that has an even number of 1s in its binary expansion. (Binary Expansion – is representation of a number in the binary numeral system or base-2 numeral system which represents numeric values using two different symbols: typically 0 (zero) and 1 (one)).
Odious Numbers: Numbers that are not Evil are called Odious Numbers. Given a number, the task is to check if it is Evil Number or Odious Numbers.
Input : 3 Output : Evil Number Explanation: Binary expansion of 3 is 11, the number of 1s in this is 2 i.e even. Input : 16 Output : Odious Number(not an evil number) Explanation: Binary expansion of 16 = 10000, having number of 1s =1 i.e odd. Input : 23 Output : Evil Number Explanation: Binary expansion of 23 is 10111, the number of 1s in this is 4 i.e even.
