(C) I and II only
(D) I and III only
(E) II and III only

Here, the positive integer m is 3 times the positive integer n(i.e) m = 3n
The sum of m and n is 3n+n = 4n. Since we need to check which of the
numbers could be the value of m+n, we need to check which number is
divisible by 4.

Of the numbers, 216 and 1048 is divisible by 4, but 314 is not divisible

Therefore, Option D(I and III only) is the answer

m=3n

m+n = 3n+n = 4n

so mulitples of 4

216,1048 are multiples of 4

(D) imo

$$m = 3*n => m + n = 4*n$$

Any number that is a multiple of 4 will satisfy the question. Trying out the number only I and III satisfy this condition => Answer (D)

We can let m = 3n, so m + n = 3n + n = 4n. Thus, a correct answer must be a multiple of 4.

Looking at the Roman numerals, only 216 and 1,048 are multiples of 4, so I and III are correct.

Here, m=3n so, 3n+n=4n. The value must be divisible by 4. 314 is not divisible by 4. Hence, the answer is D.
