Since the no. of people cannot be in fraction in any situation. We can deduce that the values of n and 3n need to be factors of 69.
Thus the value of n can only be either 1 or 23.
So the no of people who drink coke is equal to 3n + 69/n = 72 for both 1 and 23.Therefore,
Answer - A
Correct Answer: 72
