In simple words, we can also say that all numbers which are not divisible by 2 are called Odd Numbers.

Following are some examples which further explains What are Odd Numbers.

Example 1 = From the given series of whole numbers find which are odd numbers ?
Given series = 24, 39, 66, 101, 200, 877, 999.
Answer = Among the given series of whole numbers, find the numbers which are not divisible by 2 and we get
Odd Numbers are 39, 101, 877, 999.

Example 2 = From the given series of whole numbers find which are odd numbers ?
Given series = 12, 256, 19870, 333, 888, 675.
Answer = Among the given series of whole numbers, find the numbers which have 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9 at its ones place and so we get,
Odd Numbers are 333, 675.

Example 3 = From the given series of whole numbers find which are odd numbers ?
Given series = 440, 43, 76, 77, 9999, 427, 900, 709, 242
Answer = Among the given series of whole numbers, find the numbers which are not divisible by 2 and we get
Odd Numbers are 43, 77, 9999, 427, 709.

Example 4 = From the given series of whole numbers find which are odd numbers ?
Given series = 99, 88, 77, 66, 55, 6546, 9089,
Answer = Among the given series of whole numbers, find the numbers which have 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9 at its ones place and so we get,
Odd Numbers are 99, 77, 55, 9089.
