Since the sum is odd, either the numerator or denominator is odd.

Since the fraction is 1/2, the denominator is even. So, we want a faction with odd numerator, even denominator, where they add to 21 and denominator is twice the numerator.

1/2? no
3/6? no
5/10? no
7/14 <<<---

or, since the denominator is twice the numerator, that means 3 times the numerator is 21. So, 7/14.
