    Answer: (3) 9600
    Explanation:-

    Greatest number of four digit = 9999
    The LCM of 15, 25, 40 and 75
    Factors of 15 = 3 x 5
    25 = 5 x 5
    40 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 5
    75 = 3 x 5 x 5
    The LCM of 15, 25 , 40 and 75 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3  x 5 x 5 = 600
    9999 / 600 = 16 and remainder = 399
    The greatest number of four digits which is divisible by 15, 25, 40 and 75 = 9999 – 399
    = 9600
    Hence, the answer is (3) 9600.
