\(A,B, and C\) are non zero integer divisible by \(3\)so at minimum \(a=3,b=3,c=3\)
therefore abc at minimum \(= 27\) and abc should be a multiple of \(27\)
option B

We see that a = 3r, b = 3s and c = 3t for some nonzero integers r, s, and t. Therefore, abc = (3r)(3s)(3t) = 27rst. We see that abc must be divisible by 27.

Answer: B
