    Answer: (1) 5

    Explanation:-
    The H C F of two numbers = 67

    Then, the numbers will be 67 X and 67 Y
    Where, X and Y are the prime numbers.

    Their sum is 670,
    Then, 67X + 67 Y = 670
    X + Y = 670/67
    X + Y = 10
    Then, the pairs are which sum is 10 = (1, 9), (2, 8), (3, 7), (4, 6), (5, 5)

    There are only 5 pairs which sum is 10.

    Then, edupil the pairs are which sum is 670 = (67 x 1, 67 x 9), (67 x 2, 67 x 8), (67 x 3, 67 x 7), (67 x 4, 67 x 6), (67 x 5, 67 x 5)
    = (67, 603), (134, 536), (201, 469), (268, 402), (335, 335).

    Hence, the answer is (1) 5.
