(D) 7

I am presuming multiples of 6 & 7 & 9, not independently.

LCM (6,7,9) = 126

Three digit +ve integers... {100... 999}

First multiple of 126 after 100 = 126

Last multiple of 126 < 999 = 882

# of multiples = (882-126)/126 +1 (inclusive)
= 7-1 +1 = 7

Answer: D. 7

the intiger will be in the form of LCM OF (6,9,7)*K WHERE K IS ANY POSITIVE INTIGER

lcm = 7*3^2*2 = 126

now lets name our intiger K

126 < 126K<999
1< K <7.9...K COULD ONLY BE INTIGER , THUS 1=<K=<7
NUMBER OF MULTIPLES IS THUS 7-1+1 = 7
