Q:

If 78K928L is divisible by 6, then which of the following can Q and R take ?

A) K=2 & L=3 B) K=1 & L=4
C) K=1 & L=2 D) K=3 & L=3
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) K=1 & L=4

Explanation:

As per divisibility rule a number is divisible by 6 means it should be divisible by 2 and 3

case 1 : the divisibility rule for 2 is the number should be end with even number
in this case R =2 & R=4


case 2 : The divisibility rule for 3 is the sum of numbers should be divisible by 3
so if we take option (2) Q=1 & R=4 the sum is 39
if we take option (3) Q=1 & R=2 the sum is 37

So Option (2) is correct 39 is divided by 3
