Out of the digits 1 through 9, 5 are odd and 4 are even.
The sum of the two digits is odd precisely when one digit is odd and the other digit is even, so
P(sum is odd) = P(odd, then even) + P(even, then odd).
It is not clear if these two digits are selected with or without replacement, so I will use both interpretations.
Without replacement, P(odd sum) = (5/9)(4/8) + (4/9)(5/8) = 5/9.
With replacement, P(odd sum) = (5/9)(4/9) + (4/9)(5/9) = 40/81.
