    If the sum of the digits of integer N is a multiple of 3, then N itself is a multiple of 3.

    Adding 5 of the digits above, there are 2 ways to get a sum that is a multiple of 3 if no digit is repeated:
    1+2+3+4+5 = 15 and 0+1+2+4+5 = 12.

    Number of ways to arrange 1,2,3,4,5 = 5! = 120.

    Number of 5-digit integers composed of 0,1,2,4,5:
    Ten-thousands digit can be 1,2,4,5 = 4 choices.
    Number of ways to arrange the remaining 4 digits = 4! = 24.
    Combining our choices for the digits, we get:
    Number of possible integers = 4*24 = 96.

    Thus, total possible integers = 120+96 = 216.

    The correct answer is E.
