27 Number is an Odd Number.

Is it correct if we see it this way?

1-odd.
8-even.
27-odd.
64-even.
124-even.
216-even.
343-odd.

So there should be an odd number between 64 and 216 to maintain the odd-even series hence 124 is wrong.

1 8 27 64 124 216 343.

a:1 = 1.
8 = 8.
27=2+7=9.
64=6+4=10=1+0=1.
124=1+2+4=7.
216=2+1+6=9.
343=3+4+3=10=1+0=1.

Here the series is 1 8 9 1 8 9 1 8 9 but here second 8th position is occupied by 7. So the wrong number is 124.
