Since the numbers are small, I went in a rather blunt way. It is given that the product of the two consecutive numbers should be between 15 and 200.

So n(n+1) > 15. The min value possible here is when n = 4.
Also n(n+1) < 200. The max value for n is possible when n = 13.

My Ans will C. 4 and 13.

Lesson Learnt: -

1. BETWEEN does not include the boundary numbers.
2. When explicitly mentioned INCLUSIVE, only then will the boundary numbers be included.

Shouldnt it be this ?

aalriy,

Thank you for pointing it out. Sometimes, I get confused whether to include the boundary numbers or not. But looks like like when BETWEEN alone is mentioned we should not consider the boundary numbers.
