I used a less algebraic solution by backsolving/simple logic.
350 is divisible by 7 but 50 is not an option. Looking at the options you can estimate that subtractive 77 and dividing will give you something between 38 and 42.
350 – 77 = 273. 273/7 = 39.
Hence (1)77 + (39)7 = 350 Hence Ans = 40.
This may not work for more complex questions but this answer took me <1min solving this way.

My approach was somewhat similar to yangsta8's.Looking at the possible answers one can see that you can only have one 77 in the sequence(since 350 -(2x77) = 196 and 196/7=28, which is not in the answer options)
