(a) False, Because the sum of two odd number is even and the sum of even number and an odd number is odd, so the sum of three odd numbers is odd.

     for example :

     3 + 5 + 7 = 15, i.e., odd

(b) True, as the sum of two odd number is even a sum of two even number is even.

      for example :

      3 + 5 + 6 = 14, i.e., even

(c) True because the product of two odd number is odd and product of any number(odd or even) with an even number is even.

    For example :

    3 x 5 x 7 = 105, i.e., odd

(d) False, because it is possible to have a quotient even when divided by 2 

   for example :

    4÷2=24÷2=2, i.e., even

(e) False as 2 is a prime number and it is also even

(f) False as 1 and the number itself are factors of the number

(g) False  for example

     2 + 3 = 5 , i.e., odd

(h) True

(i) False  as 2 is a prime number

(j) True .
