The correct answer is D.

There are 33 numbers that are multiple of 3 less than 100 (3, 6, 9, 12, 15, …) and there are 10 numbers that are ending with 3 (3, 13, 23, 33, 43, …). From those numbers, 4 numbers (3, 33, 63, 93) are also the multiple of 3. Therefore, there are 39 numbers that are either a multiple of 3 or ending with 3:
33 + 10 – 4 = 39
