Ans: 12

M * (2N + 1) = 184

M is a multiple
N is one of the number

Solving the above eqn, We get N = 11,
So, N is one of 11, 12 or 10.
Only 12 is in the choice

Can be 8 too
two consecutive multiple of a number..
8*11=88
8*12=96
sum is 184
so the number can be 8

divide 184 with all options to see if we get an odd number. two consequtive multiples will ad up to an odd number. answer is 8. 184/8=23
11*8+12*8=184
