Hi,
from \(\frac{7A}{30}\) , we know A will be a multiple of 30..
Also a<100, so A can take values of 30,60,90..
irrespective of the value of A we take it will have the same unique prime factors..
so 30=2*3*5..
60=2^2*3*5..

so in all cases 2,3, and 5 are the unique prime factors..
ans is 3
B

for \(\frac{7A}{30}\) to be an Integer, A must be a multiple of 30
i.e. A can be 30 or 60 or 90 only [in the range of less than 100]

If A=30 = 2*3*5 i.e. 3 prime factors
If A=60 = 2^2*3*5 i.e. 3 prime factors
If A=90 = 2*3^2*5 i.e. 3 prime factors

Answer: option B
