My way of reasoning

\(P=\frac{{Favorable outcomes}}{{Possible outcomes}}\)

1) Favorable outcomes: we need the LCM for \(2^2\), \(7\) and \(2*5\) LCM=140; \(\frac{365}{140}=2.\) SO we have got only two days when they all exersice
2) Posible outcomes: normal year does have 365 days

\(\frac{2}{365}\)

IMO

Explanation:

Only 2 Days are there on which all 3 will exercise.
i.e. 140 th & 280th Day.
Probability : Favourable outcome/ total no. of outcomes
= 2/365
IMO-A
