5565/3=1855
so there will be 3 grps of 1855,so 2 comparisons
then 1855/5=371
so 5 grp of 371 so 4 comparisons required
371/7=53
6 comparisons r required
53 a prime no can be further divided so 52 comparisons required total=2+4+6+52=64

How did you get 65? Try doing the question for 6 balls, 9 balls, and so on. You should find a pattern. The answer would the number of groups of 3 the total balls can be divided in.
