Can someone help me with this


IMO B

2nd statement tells us that second integer is A+6, and the question stem tells us that fist integer is A+7

So they are consecutive integers. Consecutive integers have only one factor in common which is 1. So their GCD is 1

NOTE :- Always name the topic properly.

Still we have two possibilities
A) If 20891 is factor of A+7 then D is 20891
B) If 20891 is not factor of A+7 then D is 1

Two different answers.
