Another method: Add those 3 digit numbers which are given in the options if that answer is divisible by 3 then it will divisible by 6. Once see 1+5+0=6 it is divisible by 3 so it is divisible by 6. Remaining options are not divisible by 3 after adding. |

We can do this as: The number should be divisible by 6. We can write 6 as (2*3). Then, A) 149 -- (1+4+9) = 14 (which is divisible by 2 but not 3 so it is not divisible by 6). B) 150 --(1+5+0) = 6(which is divisible by both 2 and 3). C) 151 --(1+5+1) = 7(which is not divisible by both 2 and 3). D) 166 --(1+6+6) = 13(which is not divisible by both 2 and 3). So the answer is (b) which is divisible by both 2 and 3 i..e(2*3=6). |

Simple answer : A number is divide by 6 if that number was divisible by 2 and 3. 149 = Not divide by by 2 answer 3. 150 = Divide by 2 and 3. 151 = Not divide by by 2 answer 3. 166 = Not divide by by 2 answer 3. So answer is B. |

Total 3 digit number=999. Counting of 2 digit numbers(i.e 0-99)=100, Counting of 3 digit numbers=999-100=899, (899+1)/6=150. |

The question is about how many 3 digit numbers. So we must COUNT the numbers divisible by 6 right? |

- if any amount of nos. Is divisible by 6, Then the equal amount of nos. Is also divisible by 6. Hence, option B is correct. |
