## Answers

We know that the smallest number divisible by 5,6 and 4 is their smallest common multiple. Therefore, the required number be 1 more than this smaller common multiple.The smallest common multiple of 5,6 and 4 =60

Therefore, the required number =60+1=61

Hence, the smallest number of seeds Sunita had 61.
