x^2+3 when divided by 32 gives remainder 7
x^2+3= 32k+7
which mean x^2 = 32k +4...so now remainder is 4 for x^2 when divided by 32

lets say k=0, x^2=4 hence x =2 or -2 when divided by 2 will give an integer
but x when divided by 4 will not be integer, so is the case with 6

when k=1 , x^2=36 hence x= 6 or -6 when divided by 2 yields integer
but dividing by 4 does not give integer while with 6 it gives an integer

so combing both only x divided by 2 is common and applicable to most of the cases
As the question asks which one may be integer so all 3 options qualify for same

$$X^2$$+3 is divided by 32 leaves a reminder 7, hence the least possible value of $$X^2$$+3 = 39

So, $$x^2 = 36$$

Or, $$x = +- 6$$

I. $$x/2 = + - 3$$
II. $$x/4 = + - 1.50$$
III. $$x/6 = + - 1$$

Hence, answer must be (D) Only (I) and (III)
