C = 2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 = 129
C/3 = 129/3 = 43.

Prime numbers between 0 - 10 = 2 , 3 , 5 , 7 ( Sum = 17)

Prime numbers between 11 - 20 = 11 , 13 ,17 ( Sum = 41)

Prime numbers between 21 - 30 = 19, 23, 29 ( Sum = 71)

Sum of all the prime numbers will be 129 ( 71 + 41 + 17 )

prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29

Then I started to cancel numbers whose units numbers summing to 10:
2, 5, 23 ...3,7..., 11,19.... 13, 17,.... , 29

only 9 remained in the unit number
9/3 = 3 ....only E ends with 3

Option E

The sum of the prime numbers from 0 to 10 is:

2 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 17

The sum of the prime numbers from 11 to 20 is:

11 + 13 + 17 + 19 = 60

The sum of the prime numbers from 21 to 30 is:

23 + 29 = 52

So C/3 = (17 + 60 + 52)/3 = 129/3 = 43.
