Hi,
since the three integers are consecutive, the average will give the middle number..
Avg = 54/3 = 18....
smallest integer = 17 and largest integer = 19..
17*19 = 323
E..

No need to calculate, last digit of 17*19 has to be 3, ..
Only E fits in

x + (x + 1) + (x + 2) = 54;

x = 17 --> x + 2 = 19 --> x(x + 2) = 17*19 = ...3

Answer: E.
