Probability that one integer is a prime number
prime numbers between 20-29 are 23,29
So probability is 2/10 = 0.2

Multiple of 3
Multiple's of 3 between 20 and 29 are 21,24,27
so 3/10

Probability of choosing one prime and one factor of 3= (probability of choosing prime first and factor of 3 second) + (Probability of choosing factor of 3 first and prime second)
= 2 * 0.2 *0.3 = 0.12

Answer is B
Hope if helps!

Another way to think of it is:
How many sets of 2 numbers can be formed such that one of them is prime and the other is a multiple of 3? it's twice of (no. of primes x no. of multiples of 3)=12
How many sets of 2 numbers can be formed from the pool of numbers you're allowed to choose from? it's 10x10=100
so probability =12/100=0.12
