The correct option is C
12
When two dice are thrown simultaneously, the total number of possible outcomes is 62=36.

Let A be the event of getting a sum of outcomes as an odd number.

Thus, the favourable outcomes are (1,2),(1,4),(1,6),(2,1),(2,3),(2,5),(3,2),(3,4),(3,6),(4,1),(4,3),(4,5),(5,2),(5,4),(5,6),(6,1),(6,3),(6,5).

Thus, the number of favourable outcomes is 18.

P(A)=Number of favourable outcomes Total number of outcomes=1836=12



Hence, the correct answer is option c.
