Let number of English book sold be \(x\), so number of maths book sold \(=3x\). Here \(x\) is a positive integer

Total revenue \(=60*x+100*3x=360x\)

So Revenue generated will be a multiple of \(360\). Out of the options only \(4380\) is not a multiple of \(360\)

Option D

The total must be a multiple of 9 and option D is the only one that contradicts this statement.

The correct choice must not be a multiple of (3*100+60=360).

Since the Mathematics books are 3 times the number of English books,
if there are x English books, there will be 3x Mathematics books
English - 60 - \(2^2*3*5*x\)
Mathematics - 100 - \(2^2*5^2*3*x\)

Total = \(2^2*3*5*(x + 5x) = 2^2*3^2*x*10\)

Evaluating answer options
(A) 1080 = 36*3*10
(B) 2880 = 36*8*10
(C) 3600 = 36*100
(D) 4380 is not divisble by 36
(E) 6120 - 36*17*10

Therefore, 4380(Option D) is the revenue that cannot be generated by the sale of these books.
