Here are the solutions to the above questions in short methods. it will help you to save your precious time in the exam.

**Sol 1.**

**Ans. (d) **

For any number to be divisible by 8, its last 3 digits must be divisible by 8

By putting x=0 in 1005x4, we see that 504 will be divisible by 8.

**Sol 2. **

**Ans. (c) **

When 200 is divided by x remainder is 8. So, the number exactly divisible by x is 192.

Multiples of 192 = 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 96, 192

The remainder is always less than the divisor, so :x > 8

Desired values are 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 96, 192.

**Sol 3.**

**Ans. (a) **

For a number to be divisible by 11, the difference of the sum of alternative numbers is divisible by 11.

Hence, (7+3+*+9)-(5+2+4)

=(19+*)-(11)

=8+*

* must be 3 for 94*2357 to be divisible by 11.

**Sol 4.**

**Ans. (b) **

When 732 is divided by x remainder is 12. So, the number exactly divisible by x is 720.

The remainder is always less than the divisor, so :x > 12

Now, the factors of 720 which are more than 12 are possible values of x, i.e. (15,16,18,20,24,30,36, 40,45, 48,60, 72, 80, 90, 120, 144, 180, 240, 360, 720).

**Sol 5.**

**Ans. (a) **

In such questions directly check divisibility by 11, 9, and 8.

For a number to be divisible by 11, the difference of the sum of digits at odd or even places must be divisible by 11.

For a number to be divisible by 9, the sum of numbers must be divisible by 9.

For divisibility by 8, the last 3 numbers must be divisible by 8.

Accordingly, For x35624 divisible by 11

(x+5+2)-(3+6+4) = 0 or 11

x=6

And For 1257y4 divisible by 72,

1+2+5+7+y+4 must be divisible by 9 and the only possible value of y is 9, here.

also, 784 is divisible by 8 so the desired value of y = 8

Then, 5x-2y = 30-16 = 14** **

**Sol 7. **

**Ans. (b)**

It is given that 708x6y8z9 is divisible by 99.

Thus, 708x6y8z9 is divisible by both 11 and 9

For divisibility by 9, the sum of digits is divisible by 9 (7+0+8+x+6+y+8+z+9 = 38+x+y+z. We get 2 as the remainder when 389. Thus, 2+x+y+z must be divisible by 9)

Possible values of (z+y+x) = 7,**16**,25, etc.

For divisibility by 11, the difference of sum of digits at odd and even place is divisible by 11 (i.e. in 708x6y8z9 : (9 + 8 + 6 + 8 + 7 ) - (z + y + x + 0) = 38 - ( z + y + x) is divisible by 11 )

Possible values of (z+y+x) =38,5,**16** etc.

In such questions, we must directly verify options.

**Sol 8. **

**Ans. (c)**

Let N be the number that gives Q as quotient and 15 as the remainder when divided by d. Thus, d > 15

N = dQ+ 15

10N = 10(dQ)+ 144 + 6

clearly, d is a multiple of 144 which are: 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 16, 18, 24, and so on.

The least possible value of d is 16. (d > 15)

**Sol 9.**

**Ans. (c) **

For 146*48 to be divisible by 8, *48 must be divisible by 8.

Check options: * = 2,8 satisfies the condition. But 8>2. option c is the correct answer.

**Sol 10**.

**Ans. (a) **

For 687x29 to be divisible by 9, the sum of digits of 687x29 must be divisible by 9. Thus, x = 4 and 2x = 4
