The given series is
$\sum _{n=1}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\frac{1}{2n-1}$
Use Limit Comparison Test to find whether the given series is convergent or divergent.
The nth term of series is
${a}_{n}=\frac{1}{2n-1}$
Consider a series
$\sum _{n=1}^{\mathrm{\infty }}{B}_{n}=\sum _{n=1}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\frac{1}{n}$
then, ${B}_{n}=\frac{1}{n}$
Now,
$\underset{n\to \mathrm{\infty }}{lim}\left(\frac{{a}_{n}}{{B}_{n}}\right)=\underset{n\to \mathrm{\infty }}{lim}\left(\frac{\frac{1}{2n-1}}{\frac{1}{n}}\right)$
$\underset{n\to \mathrm{\infty }}{lim}\left(\frac{n}{2n-1}\right)$
$=\underset{n\to \mathrm{\infty }}{lim}\left(\frac{n}{n\left(2-\frac{1}{n}\right)}\right)$
$=\underset{n\to \mathrm{\infty }}{lim}\left(\frac{1}{2-\frac{1}{n}}\right)$
$=\frac{1}{2}>0$
Since, series $\left\{{B}_{n}\right\}$ is divergent.
Therefore, the given series is also divergent.
