Total numbers from 43 to 107 \(= 107-43+1=65\)

Sum of nos from 43 to 107 \(= \frac{65}{2}(43+107) = 65*75 = 3*5^3*13\)

from among the options only \(39\) divides it.

Option E

Sum of n positive integers is \(\frac{n(n+1)}{2}\)

The sum of all integers between 43 and 107 can be found out as follows:

Sum of all positive integers till 107 is \(107*54\)
Similarly, the sum of all positive integers till 42 is \(43*21\)
Therefore, the sum of all integers from 43 to 107 is \(107*54 - 43*21 = 5778 - 903 = 4875\)

\(4875\) when prime factorized is \(3*5^3*13\) and the only number which divides this is 39(Option E)
