Solution

## The correct option is B 504We know that bell 1 tolls after every 6 seconds, bell 2 after 7 seconds and so on. To find after how many seconds do the bells toll together, we need to find the LCM of the given numbers. ∴ L.C.M = 2 × 3 × 7 × 4 × 3 = 504 These bells toll together after 504 seconds.
