(i) A set of odd natural numbers divisible by 2 is a null set because no odd number is divisible by 2.

(ii) A set of even prime numbers is not a null set because 2 is an even prime number.

(iii) {x: x is a natural number, x < 5 and x > 7} is a null set because a number cannot be simultaneously less than 5 and greater than 7.

(iv) {y: y is a point common to any two parallel lines} is a null set because parallel lines do not intersect. Hence, they have no common point.
