The number of children is not specified. We are just given that there are no more than 7 children.

If we assume that number of children is 5 then answer will be A.

If we assume that number of children is 7 then answer will be D because only 420 is divisible by 7.

The prompt is quite specific, it tells you that the number of students is ≤ 7. -> x ≤ 7,
so only an answer that takes into consideration all numbers from 1 to 7 can be the OA.

Since 420 = 1 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 x 7
you see how any number from 1 to 7 is accounted for.
Something which isn't true for 560, whose prime factorization is $$2^4 x 5 x 7$$, or for 220.

So D)

(D) 420
(E) 560

No more than 7 children attending the party means the number of children could be 1,2,3,4,5,6,7.

We need to find a number that is divisible by each of these. Out of the choices given only 420 is divisible by each of these numbers.

Hence , answer is D.
