A humble suggestions. 30 would be a good trap answer here. I got 30 and then realised I'll have to reduce 1 twice. Had 30 been there, I'd got this one wrong.

Is this approach correct?

I think this is a highquality question and I agree with explanation. Great Q.

A. 28 B. 29 C. 31 D. 32 E. 33 Hi Is there a way we can apply Set theory here using the formula n(AUB)=n(A)+n(B)n(AUB)+none? IMHO, not using the Set theory will easily make you err in such questions.

I too was getting 30 again and again and then realised the same... Also if the question would have been either 13 or 12 then 30 is perfect.

I think this is a poorquality question. If 156 is counted twice , why are we deducting it twice instead of once?

I think there is \frac{195  0}{13 + 1 = 16} multiples of 13, since 0 i also a multiple of this number and should be included accordingly.
Same occurs to multiples of 12.

Same occurs to multiples of 12. The question stem says x>0. Man, to beat Bunuel we have to watch all the Rocky movies more than twice.

I am sorry but I am really not clear as to why 156 is deducted twice. Can you please elaborate?

Purelly a "set property".
Since they overlap one another, you must take that out to do not double count them.
Consider to review sets properties from Manhattan or from Gmat Club, it will help you to clarify this concept.
By the way, i shared my reasoning right above.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY 156 IS COUNTED BOTH IN 15 AND 16?
