(12n+3) is always odd. When (12n+3) is odd then 9^(12n+3) will always have the unit digit as 9. Then 9^(12n+3)+10 will also have a unit digit of 9.

So the remainder will always be 9.

12n + 3 is a number always divisible by 3

Also 9^3 has unit digit of 9
hence 9^x where x is a number divisble by 3 will have a unit digit 9
Hence 9^(12n+3)/10 has a remainder 9
