For a odd number, we must have 1,3 or 5 at the unit's place. So there are 3 ways of filling the unit's place.
1) Since the repetition of digits is not allowed, the ten's place can be filled with any of the remaining 5 digits in 5 ways. Now, four digits are left. So hundred's place can be filled in 4 ways.
So the required numbers = 3 x 5 x 4 = 60
2) Since the repetition of digits is allowed, so each of the ten's and hundred's place can be filled in 6 ways.
Hence, required numbers = 3 x 6 x 6 = 108
