You could start by using the interactivity - what happens when you pick out two balls from set $A$ $100$ times?
How many times did you get an even total? Were you expecting this?

Work out all the possible combinations for set $A$, to see if you can make sense of what happened.
How will you make sure you don't miss any combinations out?
