The Least common positive multiple would be for the immediate least number(s) after 26 i.e 27.
Since nowhere is it stated that the three integers must be different, the integers could be 27,27 and 27... leading to least possible positive common multiple to be 27. Answer A.

The smallest possible common multiple of 3 integers , all larger than 26 will be 27 .
LCM will be lowest when all the 3 integers are the same .
