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

Please give kudos, if you find my explanation good enough
