7*2 =14.

S consists of the integers that are multiple of 14.

140 to 240

140 = 14*10

238 = 14*17

Total number of multiples = 17 -10 +1 = 8.

IMO C

Multiples of both 7 and 2, multiples of 14, will be an AP of those terms

First Term = 140, Last Term = 238

n = number of term

Last term = First term + (n-1) common difference
238 = 140 + (n-1) 14
98 /14 = n-1
7 + 1 = n

n = 8

lcm would be 14
so
140/14 = 10
240/14 = ~17
total no 17-10+1 = 8
IMO C
