Q:

A number of cats got together and decided to kill between them 999919 rats. Every cat killed an equal number of rats. Each cat killed more rats than there were cats. How many rats do you think that each cat killed ?

A) 1009 B) 991
C) 2000 D) 1000
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1009

Explanation:

Given total number of rats = 999919

 

999919 = 1000000 - 81 = 10002 - 92 = (1000+9)(1000-9) = 1009 x 991.
Since there were more rats than there were cats, 991 cats killed 1009 rats each.
