The multiples of all odd numbers are odd and even. Odd x odd = odd. Odd x even = even. Since odd and even numbers alternate, the multiples will alternate as well.

Why can't a number ending in 3 be a multiple of 4?

Even numbers are the multiples of 2 and are those numbers which end with one of {0, 2, 4, 6, 8}; odd numbers are those which are not multiples of two and are those numbers which end with {1, 3, 5, 7, 9}. When an even number is multiplied by an even or odd number the result is always an even number. 4 is an even number; thus all its multiples are even numbers. Any number that ends with a 3 is an odd number. There are no numbers which are both odd and even; therefore no multiple of 4 can end in a 3.
