Simply put integers and eliminate for ex:
If you put m = 1 , only 3 can divide it. That's your answer.
Only 1

Hi Leonaann,

When posting GMAT questions, you should make sure to post the FULL question (including the 5 answer choices) and post the question to the proper sub-forum. For example, the Problem Solving Forum can be found here:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/problem-solving-ps-140/

As rajatvermaenator has pointed out, this question can be solved rather easily by TESTing VALUES. From that first TEST, we've proven that neither Roman Numeral 2 or 3 will be part of the correct answer. Based on how the 5 answer choices are written, that one bit of work could be enough to get you the correct answer.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
