We should find the LCM of 15 = 3*5, 17, 19, and 21 = 3*7 --> LCM = 3*5*7*17*19 = 7*15*17*19.

Answer: C.

We are looking for divisibility by 15, 17, 19, 21

17 & 19 are prime numbers >> They have to be in the integer required, so option D is ignored

LCM of 15 & 21 = 3 * 5 * 7 = \(15 * 7\) OR \(35 * 3\) OR 21 * 5

Option A, B & D can be ignored

Answer = C

ok so we need to make sure that the number is divisible by 15, 17, 19, and 21.
it is mandatory to have 17 and 19.
15 = 3x5
21 = 3x7
so we need at least one factor of 3, then one of 5, and one of 7.

overall:
we need
1 factor of 3, 1 factor of 5, 1 factor of 7, 17, and 19.

C fits.

E) 15×17×19×21


Now odd integers will be 15,17,19,21

Highest value will be E

and lowest value will be C

since we are asked the lowest possible integer value, it is

C
