Since the numbers must be distinct and increasing from left to right,

The only arrangements we could come-up with are:

345_ --> 4
346_ --> 3
347_ --> 2
348_ --> 1
356_ --> 3
357_ --> 2
358_ --> 1
367_ --> 2
368_ --> 1
378_ --> 1

Number of integers =

Your number is 3***
You have 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9; So eliminate 0 1 2 3; Remain S = {4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9} (6 digits)
Because you need 3 distinct digits which increase from left to right, take 3 digits from S.
With 3 digits which increase from left to right : only one way to arrange; Ex: 468 (not 486)
It means: 6C3 = 6!/[3!x(6 - 3)!] = 6!/[3!x3!] = 4 x 5 x 6 / 3! = 4 x 5 = 20.
So the answer is A.
