    Answer is (2): 7

    Explanation:-
    Find the LCM of 12, 16, 18 and 21
    Factors of 12 =  2 x 2 x 3
    Factors of 16 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2
    Factors of 18 = 2 x 3 x 3
    Factors of 21 =  3 x 7
    Then, the LCM of 12, 16, 18 and 21 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3  x 3  x 7
     =  1008
    The second multiple of 1008 = 2 x 1008 
     = 2016

    Then, the value of X = 2016 – 2000
     = 16

    So, the of the digits 16 = 1 + 6 
     = 7

    Hence, the answer is (2) 7.
