### Solution:

(1)
Sol: Option (d)
122,124,1210,126 Find the L.C.M.
L.C.M. = 1210

(2)
Sol: Option(c)
6-1,6-3,6-10,6-12 Find the H.C.F.
1/6,1/6,1/610 ,1/612
H.C.F.= H.C.F./L.C.M.1/612
= 16-12

(3)
Sol: Option (d)
Fraction of L.C.M. = L.C.M./H.C.F. =140/3
(4)
Sol: Option (c)
The ratio of numbers is 5:6
The number is 59=45
=69=54

(5)
Sol: Option (b)
L.C.M.H.C.F. = Ist No2nd No.
800H.C.F. = 20,000
H.C.F. = 20,000/800 = 25

(6)
Sol: Option (c)
L.C.M. of the number 4,6,7,8,9,12
L.C.M. = 897 = 504
and Remainder = 3
So the number is L.C.M. + 3
504 + 3 = 507

(7)
Sol: Option (b)
L.C.M. = (3✘5✘22)
Required number = ( 32✘52✘22)=900

(8)
Sol: Option (c)
Required number = H.C.F. of (147-77)
(252-147) and (252-77)
= H.C.F. of 70,105 and 175
= 35
( 70 = 2✘5✘7, 105 = 5✘3✘7 and 175=5✘5✘7 )
H.C.F. =5✘7 = 35

(9)
Sol: Option (a)
= H.C.F. of numerator/ L.C.M. of denominator
H.C.F.= 12/75
