A

90 = 2*(3^2)*5
196 = (2^2)*(7^2)
300 = (2^2)*3*(5^2)

LCM = (2^2)*(3^2)*(5^2)*(7*2)

600 = (2^3)*3*(5^2)

600 = (2^3)*3*(5^2)


i am not getting A as the answer infact for me all are factors of M.

A - 600

90 = 2*3*3*5
196 = 2*2*7*7
300 = 3*5*5*2*2

LCM = 3*3*5*5*2*2*7*7 = 3*3*100*7*7

700,900,2100 and 4900 are all factors of 9*100*49
