15B is divisible by 6
=> 3*5*B is divisible by 3*2
=> 5*B is divisible by 2
=> B has to be even.

Ans A it is.

15B/6 = integer

Since we know that prime numbers of 15 are 3 and 5, B has to have at least one 2 so that the result can be an integer.
Moreover, B has to be even since it has at least one 2.
Correct answer is A.

I'd solve this the same way as Vips did above, but if you notice that B can be equal to 2 here, then you can also see immediately that the answer is A.
