        if (n.startsWith("-"))
            n = n.substring(1);
        char[] nArray = n.toCharArray();
        for (char c : nArray) {
            if (!Character.isDigit(c))

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {

            String lastDigit = nstr.substring(nstr.length() - 1);
            int n = Integer.parseInt(lastDigit);
            String result = n % 2 == 0 ? "Even" : "Odd";
        } catch (NumberFormatException | ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException | StringIndexOutOfBoundsException e) {
