Solution



Given:
    • The expression x ~ y is defined as the sum of all the prime integers between x and y

To find:
    • Among the given options, which ones are equal to 17

Approach and Working:
We know that x ~ y = sum of all prime integers between x and y

    • 1 ~ 10 = 2 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 17
    • 6 ~ 12 = 7 + 11 = 18
    • 14 ~ 18 = 17

Hence, the correct answer is option D.

Answer: D
