Ans: A


Total sec in 2 hours = 2 * 60 * 60
Lights flash togather at an interval of 504 sec.
Divide and we get 14.

Let me explain it

Let us say one light flashes at 2 seconds and another at 5 seconds then they both coincide at 10 seconds. In 20 seconds they coincide 2 times in 40 seconds they do 4 times.
They way to solve this is take LCm of 2 and 5 you get 10
in 40 seconds they coincide 40/10 = 4 times
LCM of ( 6,7,8,9 ) is 504
In 2 hours we have 60 * 60 * 2 seconds
So they flash together 7200/504 times = 14 times.
