Select the correct answer


Solution!
Clearly, the required number would be such that it leaves a remainder of 1 when divided by 3, 4, 5, or 6 and no remainder when divided by 7. Thus, the number must be of the form (L.C.M of 3, 4, 5, 6) x + 1 i.e., (60x + 1 ) and a multiple of 7. Clearly, for x = 5, the number is a multiple of 7. So the number is 301.
