Q.9: If the number 4A306768B2 is divisible by both 8 and 11, then the smallest possible values of A and B will be:
(A) A = 3, B = 5
(B) A = 5, B = 4
(C) A = 5, B = 2
(D) A = 5, B = 3

Ans : (D) A = 5, B = 3
4 A 3 0 6 7 6 8 B 2
B = 3 is divisible by 8 [divisible by ]
The whole number is divisible by 11
A = 5
so A = 5, B = 3

(B)
(C)
(D)

Ans : (C)
4 y 6 8 8 4 8 0 5 x 6
72 = 9×8, is divisible by 9 and 8
if x = 3 is divisible
The whole number 4 y 6 8 8 4 8 0 5 3 6 is divisible by 9.
y = 2 Keeping
The Sum of the digits will be divisible by 9

Q.11: When a number is divided by 3, the remainder is 2. Again, when the quotient is divided by 7, the remainder is 5. What will be the remainder when the original number is divided by 21?
(A) 14
(B) 16
(C) 13
(D) 17

Ans : (D) 17
divisor 3 7
remainder 2 5
Number (7 + 5) x 3 + 2 = 38
According of question remainder

Q.12: The largest six-digit number exactly divisible by 243 is:
(A) 999947
(B) 999945
(C) 999949
(D) 999943

Ans : (B) 999945
Largest six digit number = 999999
999999/243 = 54 remainder
= 999999 – 54 = 999945

(D) 50

Ans : (C) 54
2 5 9 8 7 6 p 0 5
is divisible by 11
Sum of digits at even places – Sum of digits at odd places = 0
(23+P) – 19 = 0 or 11
P = 7 satisfy
P2+5
72+5 = 54

Q.14: If the nine-digit number ‘8475639AB’ is divisible by 99, then what is the value of A and B ?
(A) A = 4, B = 6
(B) A = 4, B = 8
(C) A = 3, B = 9
(D) A = 5, B = 3

Ans : (B) A = 4, B = 8
8 4 7 5 6 3 9 A B,
is divisible by 99
Will also be divisible by 99 = 11 x 9
