Okay, I see your clarification , and again, if the total of the dice must be odd, and the number on the 20 sided die must be a multiple of 4, then only 1, 3 and 5 need to be considered on the 6 sided die. P(1.3.or 5) on d6 = 1/2 5 numbers on d20 are multiples of 4, so that probability is 5/20 = 1/4. Multiplying those two probabilities gives 1/2 x 1/4 = 1/8, and not one of the choices. Is there information missing?
