Let the three digit number be HTO. H and T can take any of the 4 values whereas O can be only 7. 4 x 4 = 16 possibilities.

third digit is seven as number is odd , for first and second digit 4 possibilities for both as repetition is allowed otherwise it would be 3 and 2 respectively, so as repetition is allowed we have 4x4x1=16 is the answer :)
