D. well +ve integers.

multiples of 5 = 995/5 = 199
multiples of 5 and 4 = 49
multiples of 5 and 7 = 28

so multiple of 5 but not of 4 and 7 = 199-49-28 = 122

You got the right answer choice, but not the right number of multiples!

Rethink your counting principles (Venn diagram)!

Good start, though

u forgot to add back the numbers that are multiples of 5,4 and 7.
122 + 7 = 129 is the actual answer.
