2,3,4,6,8,9,10. And the negative of these numbers. Total of 14 numbers.

And 0 is also a multiple of 2 or 3. Hence 15 numbers.

D is the answer

A. 6
B. 7
C. 11
D. 15
E. 17


Starting from -11, every other number is a multiple of 2 and every third number is a multiple of 3.

-10,-8,-6,-4,-2,0,2,4,6,8,10(11) are multiples of 2 and -9,-6,-3,0,3,6,9(7) are multiples of 3.
Also, 0 is present in both the lists. The common numbers present in both the lists are -6,0,6(3)

Therefore, there are 11 + 7 - 3 = 15(Option D) terrific numbers between -11 and 11.
