Given $\overrightarrow{2i}+\overrightarrow{3j}+\overrightarrow{4k} $ and $\overrightarrow{ai}+\overrightarrow{bj}+\overrightarrow{ck}$ are perpendicular
$ \therefore \overrightarrow{2i}+\overrightarrow{3j}+\overrightarrow{4k}.\overrightarrow{ai}+\overrightarrow{bj}+\overrightarrow{ck}=0$
$2a+3+4c=0$ ----(1)
$a=4 ,b = 4 ,c=-5 $ is the only values satisfying equation.
Hence 3 is the correct answer.
