That's impossible. Adding up an odd number of odd numbers will give an answer that is an odd number. 50 is an even number. So adding up 5(5 is an odd number) odd numbers will not give 50, an even number.

It is not possible. The sum of 7 odd numbers must be odd while 50 is not odd.

It is not possible. The sum of 5 odd numbers must be odd and 50 is not odd.

There have to be an even number of odd numbers in each group, and each group must have more than two odd numbers (since 19 + 17 is only 36); thus there must be four in one group and six in the other. There are many ways to get four odd numbers to add up to to 50; for example, you could take 1, 13, 17 and 19. The remaining six odd numbers will then also add up to 50.

An odd number of odd numbers can not add up to an even number. There fore any 9 (odd) odd numbers can not add up to 50 (even).

It is not possible. The sum of 7 odd numbers must be odd while 50 is not odd.

The given numbers are all odd. The sum of 5 odd numbers must be odd. 50 is not odd so there is no solution.

5 odd numbers CAN'T add up to an even number like 50

It is not possible. The sum of 5 odd numbers must be odd and 50 is not odd.

It cannot be done. Five odd numbers add up to an odd number and so cannot equal 50.

It is not possible for five odd numbers to add up to 50 or any even number.

50 is an even number. To get even number by adding odd number of numerical values, ie three numbers that too all of them odd seems not at all possible.

It cannot make the sum because: if the numbers are in odd quantity there sum is always a odd number
