##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Set theory: This question is more of a Number Systems question than a Set Theory one!!

Set A = {100, 105, 110, ….995} ↦ {5 * 20, 5 * 21, ….. 5 * 199} ↦ 180 elements.
Set B = {102, 108, 114, ……996} ↦ {6 * 17, 6 * 18, 6 * 19, ….. 6 * 166} ↦ 150 elements.
Set C = {100, 104, 108, …..996} ↦ {4 * 25, 4 * 26, ….. 4 * 249} ↦ 225 elements.

A ∩ B = {120, 150, 180, …..990} ↦ All 3-digit multiples of 30 ↦ 30 elements.
B ∩ C = {108, 120, 132, …..996} ↦ All 3-digit multiples of 12 ↦ 75 elements.
C ∩ A = {120, 140, 160, …..980} ↦ All 3-digit multiples of 20 ↦ 45 elements.

A ∩ B ∩ C = {120, 180, …..960} ↦ All 3-digit multiples of 60 ↦ 15 elements.
A ∪ B ∪ C = A + B + C – A ∩ B – B ∩ C – C ∩ A + A ∩ B ∩ C
= 180 + 150 + 225 – 30 – 75 – 45 + 15 = 420

The question is "How many elements are present in A ∪ B ∪ C?"

##### Hence, the answer is "420".

Choice A is the correct answer.
