A) 4 B) 5
C) 6 D) 7
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 4

Explanation:

132 = 4 x 3 x 11, So if the number is divisible by all three numbers 4,3 and 11,then the number is divisible by 132 also.
264   => 4,3,11(/)
396   => 4,3,11(/)
462   => 11,3
792   => 4,3,11(/)
968   => 11,4
2178 => 11,3
5184 => 3,4
6336 => 4,3,11(/)

Q:

The sum of all two digit numbers divisible by 5 is

A) 945 B) 678
C) 439 D) 568
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 945

Explanation:

Required numbers are 10,15,20,25,...,95
This is an A.P. in which a=10,d=5 and l=95.
Let the number of terms in it be n.Then t=95
So a+(n-1)d=95.
10+(n-1)*5=95,then n=18.
Required sum=n/2(a+l)=18/2(10+95)=945.

Q:

A boy multiplied 987 by a certain number and obtained 559981 as his answer. If in the answer both 98 are wrong and the other digits are correct , then the correct answer would be :

A) 553681 B) 555181
C) 555681 D) 556581
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 555681

Explanation:

987 = 3 * 7 * 47.
So, the required number must be divisible by each one of 3, 7, 47
553681 => (Sum of digits = 28, not divisible by 3)
555181 => (Sum of digits = 25, not divisible by 3)
555681 is divisible by each one of 3, 7, 47.
