GMAT Question

How is the answer C?

L is the median of A which is 3.

M is the mode of B so K has to be either of the given values so as to get a mode. (Bcz mode is max occurred no and in set B , every no is written once so K is the deciding factor?).

Now In the options except 0 no other no is present in set B hence k is 0.
But if K is 0 then mode is 0 i.e M is 0.
Then Z = 0.
How does that satisfy the condition asked in the question!?
(Z is divisor of 26) ?
