O = Positive Odd Number
E = Positive Even Number
O^O+O=E
O^O+E=O
O^E+O=O
O^E+E=E
E^O+O=O
E^O+E=E
E^E+O=E
E^E+E=E
So we have the number;
10 ^ 2002 + 2 =? => E ^ E + E = E
Red Numbers ruled out
4
5
6
9
10^1001
Why it can't be 10^1001
The result of 10^2002 + 2 ends in the digit 2.
So imagine shift that number, 1001 decimals places the right.
After you done that the 2 is 1001 places to the right of the decimal point.
<Integer Part>.<Fractional Part>
Now the list is;
4
5
6
9
10^1001
Why can't it be 4
Dividing the number by 2, the result ends with a 1
Dividing this answer by 2 result in a fractional part of .5
Now the list is;
4
5
6
9
10^1001
Why it must be 6
If I may quote Sherlock Holmes
Quote
The Sign of the Four, ch. 6 (1890)
Sherlock Holmes in The Sign of the Four (Doubleday p. 111)
Explanation
Quick to see if a number is divisible by 3.
The sum of all the digits is a multiple of 3.
2000 x 0
1 x 1
1 x 2
0+1+2=3
3/3=1
Add any number that is both a multiple of 2 and 3, must also be a multiple of 6.
Not as hard as it first looks.

Have to look into that one!
And where did he come from into the room? I haven't read The Sign of the Four!
