x is divisible by 20 means that x is definitely divisible by all factors of 20. But we can’t be sure about divisibility of x by other multiples of 20: 20*2, 20*3 …. Our B is infinite set {0; +∞}, but we are definite only with part of it’s elements, which represent factors of 20.

$$20 = 2^2*5$$

# of factors =$$3*2 = 6$$

Factors of 20 = 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20
Multiples of 20 = 20 , 40 , 60, 80.....................

So, B = { 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20 40 , 60, 80..................... }

x/20 = Remainder 0

Let the minimum value of x = 20

Thus , x must be divisible by 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20

So, x must also be divisible by 6 members of set B

Answer will be (C) 6

Set B = ( 1,2,4,5,10,20,40... )
x can be divisible only by 20 and factors of 20.
6
C
