Answer: (1) 1296

Explanation:-
The H C F of two numbers = 144
The L C M of two numbers = 864
One of the numbers  = 96

Formula-
(L C M  x  H C F) of two numbers = the product of two numbers

Then, 144 x 864 = 96 x other number
Other number = 144 x 864/96
= 1296

Then, the other number is 1296.

Hence, the answer is (1) 1296.
