There  are 4 * 4  =  16 possible outcomes

 

1, 3, 4, 6

 

Let us find the possibilities where the sum is > 5

 

(1, 6)    (6, 1)  ( 3, 4) ( 4, 3) (3, 6) (6, 3)  ( 4, 6) ( 6, 4) (3, 3) (4, 4) (6, 6)

 

So  the ones that include at least one odd number are

 

(1,6) (6,1), (3,4) (4,3) (3,6) (6,3) (3,3)  =    7
