    Answer: (3) 121

    Explanation:-
    The L C M of 4, 5 and 6
    Then, the factors of 4 = 2 x 2
    The factors of 5 = 1 x 5
    The factors of 6 = 2 x 3

    Then, the L C M of 4,5 and 6= 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 = 60
    The smallest number of three digits which is divisible by 4, 5 and 6 = 60 x 2
    = 120

    The leaving remainder is 1.
    Then, the number is 120 + 1 = 121

    Hence, the answer is (3) 121.
