A. 67

B. 85

C. 129

D. 87

Answer : B. 85


Explanation:

    Since the numbers are co-prime, they contain only 1 as the common factor.
    It is also given that two products have the middle number in common.
    So, middle number = H.C.F. of 551 and 1073 = 29.
    So, First number is = 551/29 = 19.
    Third number = 1073/29 = 37
    So sum of these numbers is = (19 + 29 + 37) = 85.
