Denote our number by N. Then we can write:
N = DQ + 7, where Q is a non-negative integer. Necessarily 7 < D.
N = 3Dq + 20, where q is also a non-negative integer, and 20 < 3D.
From the above two equations, we can deduce that DQ + 7 = 3Dq + 20, or D(Q - 3q) = 13.
It follows that D must be a factor of 13, and since D > 7, then D must be equal to 13.

From the second equality, multiplying by 2, we obtain 2N = 6 * 13q + 40 = (3 * 13)*(2q) + 3 * 13 + 1, which means that the remainder when 2N is divided by 3D = 3 * 13 is 1.

Answer A.
