I recently bought "Ordinary Differential Equations" by V I Arnold to study differential equation. In that book he assumes we know basic topology. I want to know which subfield of topology should I know, in order to study this book.

As you said, basic topology. The early chapters of Munkres or Mendelson will be more than enough.

In Munkres there are two parts, general & algebraic. So then as per your reply, there is no need to study algebraic topology. Am I correct?

Correct, no algebraic topology is necessary for reading Arnold.
