K=2*3*5*7*11*13*17*19*23*29+1.....K is ODD
Surely K will NOT be divisible by any of the prime number from 2 to 29

I. K is divisible by prime number.
All numbers>1 are surely divisible by some prime number..True

II. K has a prime factor greater than 29.
K is NOT divisible by any of the prime factors from 2 to 29, so it has to have a prime factor>29..True

III. K is divisible by 30
K is ODD..False

I and II true

D

K does not have 2 As a prime factor. K is 2*..+1=even+1=odd

Now say x=2*3*4..*29 is product of all numbers from 2 to 29, so x is divisible by all numbers from 3 to 29.
But the moment you add 1 to x, that is x+1 will NOT be divisible by any numbers that x is divisible by because x and x+1 are consecutive numbers.
So x+1 is NOT divisible by any numbers from 2 to 29. And x+1=2*3*4..*29+1=k

Make it simple strategy!

Try with 2, 3, 5.

2*3*5 = 30 + 1 = 31

Hence, just I and II would be correct.
