2357 is given in octal

so its binary equivalent will be obtained by converting every number into 3-bit equivalent binary (010 011 101 111)

Now to convert this octal number into its equivalent hexadecimal number, pair 4 bits of above binary number starting from MSB

it will become    (0100  1110   1111) which will be equivalent to 4EF

so, answer  is C
