252


help!

least common multiple of two number greater than 125 has to multiple of 126. i.e.
252. so if we take 126 and 252 (distinct integers ) then lowest possible common multiple will be 252.

factorize 126

126=3*3*2*7

we need lowest common multiple, so other integer should be 126 multiplied by 2 (lowest prime)

First Number greater than 125 = 126

Second Number with maximum factor of it common with first number = 252 (smallest integer multiple of 126 greater than 126)

LCM = 252

Answer: Option D
