Best answer

 If a card has an even value on one side, then its opposite face is red.

to verify this proposition:

  • the card with even number must be turned to check whether the opposite face is red or not.
  • If the face of the card is other then red colour, it's opposite face must not be even number, so this needs to be checked.
  • If a card face is of red colour, the opposite side may contain any number, so checking this card is needless.
  • If a card face contains an odd number, checking the opposite side colour is needless.

So, a card containing number $2$ on one side and colour Blue on opposite, needs to be turned to verify the proposition.

Hence, Option "C" is the correct choice.
