1) We need sets of three distinct integers {a, b, c} that have a sum of one-digit number d. There are seven possibilities:

a) {1, 2, 3}, sum = 6
b) {1, 2, 4}, sum = 7
c) {1, 2, 5}, sum = 8
d) {1, 3, 4}, sum = 8
e) {1, 2, 6}, sum = 9
f) {1, 3, 5}, sum = 9
g) {2, 3, 4}, sum = 9

For each set, the sum-digit has to be in the one’s place, but the other three digits can be permutated in 3! = 6 ways in the other three digits. Thus, for each item on that list, there are six different possible four-digit numbers. The total number of possible four-digit numbers would be 7*6 = 42. Answer = (E)
