Why can't there be probability density equal to 100 percent in an orbital?

The probability density cannot be greater than 100% because nothing exists with a higher probability, except colloquially. We can say that we have a 110% certainty of something but that is only meant to express how certain we are. Because in reality nothing can be more than 100% in terms of probability density.

Can probability be higher than 100 percent... Say you have 4 oil wells each with a 30 percent chance of hitting ...Isn't the calculated probability of one hitting 120 percent?

No. Probability is defined as a number between 0 and 1 (100 percent). If you have four oil wells, each with a probability of hitting being 30%, then the probability of at least one hitting is 100% - (100% - 30%)4, or about 76%.

Can odds be greater than one?

yes they can In terms of probability, one is taken to mean absolute certainty, something that must happen, equivalent to a 100% probability (100 out of 100 is equal to one). Hence, odds cannot be greater than one.

Why can not 120 percent be the probabilty of some event?

Then the probability of A is the number of such outcomes as a proportion of all possible outcomes (related to the trial or experiment). Defined as a proportion in this way, it can never be greater than 1. Converted to a percentage, that means it can never be greater than 100 percent.
