A) 1677 B) 1683
C) 2523 D) 3363

Answer:   B) 1683



Explanation:

 L.C.M of 5, 6, 7, 8 = 840

\inline \fn_jvn \therefore Required Number is of the form 840k+3.

Least value of k for which (840k+3) is divisible by 9 is k = 2 

\inline \fn_jvn \therefore  Required  Number = (840 x 2+3)=1683

C) 37 D) 35
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 37

Explanation:

The number of liters in each can = HCF of 80, 144 and 368 = 16 liters.
Number of cans of Maaza = 368/16 = 23
Number of cans of Pepsi = 80/16 = 5
Number of cans of Sprite = 144/16 = 9
The total number of cans required = 23 + 5 + 9 = 37 cans.
