Solution

The correct option is B 17,18,19,20
Let the first integer=p
the second integer =p+1
and the third consecutive integer =p+2 and fourth =p+3
Sum of four consecutive numbers = 74
p+(p+1)+(p+2)+(p+3)=74
4p+6=74
4p=68

p=684
p=17
1 st integer =17
2nd integer =18
3rd integer =19
4 th integer =20

So, option B is correct.
