why UltraScale Memory Resources are 36K?

I know that BRAM stores up to 36Kbits (one 36kb RAM or two 18kb RAMs)

It can figured 32K x 1, 16K x 2, 8K x 4, 4K x 9, 2K x 18 or 1K x 36.

WHY BRAM are 36K, NOT 32K or 30K?

are there any advantages?

So that you can have parity, to assist with detecting and correcting errors. One bit of parity per byte of RAM. For a 32-bit wide RAM, 32 bits = 4 bytes, so you have an extra 4 bits for parity data. 32 bits of data plus 4 bits of parity gives you 36-bit.
