    int randNum;
    Element ranEle = null;
    Attribute attribute = null;
    for (int i = ; i < 10 ; i ++) {
      randNum = random.nextInt(1729);
      //Create a new attribute with boolean string as value
      attribute = new Attribute("even", String.valueOf(randNum % == 0));
      ranEle = new Element("Number");
      ranEle.addAttribute(attribute)//Add the new attribute
      //Append the newly created child element
    //Pretty print
