K>13, a>34, z>101 as per quotient & remainder property.
Hence min value for K is 14, A is 35 & Z is 102 Hence, possible value for K+A+Z = 151(14+35+102). Hence D.

Yes, that's correct my friend

e) 1, 2 and 3

Since division by k gives remainder 13, k >= 14
Since division by a gives remainder 34, a >= 35
Since division by z gives remainder 101, z >= 102

So k + a + z >= 14 + 35 + 102

k + a + z >= 151

So of the given values, only 151 satisfies this condition.
