    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.
