Ans = D

154 is divisible by 2,7,11,14,22 and 77. Only these can be either number of children or number of candies distributed for equal distribution.

D.

Is there a short-cut to solving this problem. I tried by taking each integer in the given ranges and finding if it was a factor of 154. This took a lot of time!!!!

154=2Â·77
154=22Â·7
154=14Â·11

Therefore D is the solution.
