Sort of:

100<3x+2<110

100<4y+1<110

3x+2=4y+1

Not really, then, though I tried. Anyway, the answer is clearly 101.

Of the five numbers given lets try to fit in the first condition...

multiple of 3 with 2 as the remainder..

only 101 = 3*33 +2 and 107 = 3*35 +2 satisfy this condition.

Now we apply the 2nd condition...multiple of 4 with 1 as the remainder..on these 2 numbers..

101 = 25*4 +1 and 107 = 25*26+3
