Two fissioning systems [U-235(n(th), f) and Cf-252(sf)] have been studied to see the consequence of prompt neutron emission on odd-even effects. Monte Carlo calculations have been carried out for prompt neutron emission. Fragment and product yields have been analyzed by the Wahl Z(p), Model the Method of Differences and Model Independent Calculations. The result of the wash-out effect of prompt neutron emission on the neutron odd-even effect has been shown: however, this was not seen with the protons.
