Let first number is $’x’$, and second number is $’y’.$
$(x^{2} - y^{2}) = 45$
$\implies (x - y)(x + y) = 45$
Thus, the factors of $45$ possibles are $15, 3, 9, 5, 1$ and $45$
Hence, numbers are $9$ and $6$ or $7$ and $2$ or $23$ and $22$
$\therefore$ The number of such pairs $= 3.$
So, the correct answer is $(C).$
