None of them are correct. The correct answer:

It is proved in only a few papers related to math. / It is proved only in a few papers related to math.

The answer can’t be:

  1. It is proved in only few papers related to math.
  2. It is only proved in few papers related to math.

For all nouns, we need an article. ‘Papers’= a noun Since we are talking about ‘a few’ and not any specific one, the answer is ‘a’. The other option:

It is proved in only a few papers related to math.

In this sentence, the clause can be ‘in only’ or ‘only in’.
