\(7^1 = 7\)
\(7^2 = 49\). 9 divisible by 3.
\(7^3 = 343\). 3 divisible by itself

I: false, since n can be 3 too.
II: false, since n can be 2 too.
III: false, since n can be 2 and is not divisible by 3.

Since the pattern of units digits of 7^n is 7-9-3-1, we see that 7^2, 7^3, 7^6, 7^7, 7^10, 7^11, 7^14, 7^15, etc. all have units digits that is divisible by 3. We see that not all values of n are even, or odd, or divisible by 3. So none of the Roman numerals is true.

Answer: E
