192
96
48
24
12

3

3 is not divisible by 6, the rest are. (to be divisible by 6 the divisor must have 2 and 3 as factors)

192
192 / 2 = 96
96 / 2 = 48
48 / 2 = 24
24 / 2 = 12
12 / 2 = 6
6 / 2 = 3
and 2

Ans: B (30 sec)

Quickly identify that 192 = 6 X 2^5

so values are 6X1, 6X2, 6X2^2 .....6X2^5 so in total 6 values
