More odd than even?

Return the word "odd" if the number of odd numbers is bigger than the number of even numbers. Return the word "even" otherwise.

The list {1,3,5,8,6} returns "odd" because there are 3 odds and only 2 evens.

f([1,1,1,1])             -> odd
f([1,2,3,4,5,6])         -> even
f([-1,1,-1,1,-1])        -> odd
f([1,2,101,4,-1])        -> odd
f([4,2,6,1,1])           -> even

Small, medium, large

  • Numbers less than 2 are small.
  • Numbers greater than 4 are large.
  • Other numbers are medium.
f({1,1,1,1})             -> [4, 0, 0]
f({1,2,3,4,5,6})         -> [1, 3, 2]
f({-1,1,-1,1,-1})        -> [5, 0, 0]
f({1,2,101,4,-1})        -> [2, 2, 1]
f({4,2,6,1,1})           -> [2, 2, 1]
