only possible relation would be:

10<15<17<19<20

15+17= 32 IMO D

Project PS Butler : Question #83

Consecutive odd integers between 10 and 20 are 11,13,15,17,19
B and C are prime numbers. Since A is at least 11, then B and C must be 17 and 19.

Hence A = 15, B = 17, C = 19.

A+B = 32

Note:

1. a,b,c are consecutive odd integers.
2.b and c are prime numbers.

Range: 10<a<b<c<20.

All the odd withing the range: 11,13,15,17,19.

***we have to keep in mind that last 2 consecutive odd and prime.

Thus , a<b<c = 15<17<19.

a + b = 15 + 17 = 32.
