ETS doesn't assume you have this knowledge, and doesn't require you to have this knowledge. For people who don't know this rule, this information is required to solve the problem.

ok, then is this rule saying that when 9 divided by 9 leaves a remainder of 9 ? It is talking abt "any" number. What abt non integer numbers ? Doesn't seem to be correct rule. :?

Yes, it is not formulated correctly, I would say. What if the sum of the digits are 14? You need to sum it again until the sum is less than 9.

Also, when we talk about reminders, we are usually talking about integers.

OK I admit I have no clue about this topic. So I strategically guessed and picked 18.

here is why....maybe it can help those who dont know these rules..(me :))


well the last digit is 4 (which means its even, i.e divisible by 2)

the sum of the other remaining digits is 23...

hmm, all I know is that for a number to be divisible by 3, its sum must be divisible by 3... (so we have 23+4=27, which is divisible by 3!)

now, I know that this number cannot be a prime (because of the 4!)eliminate choice (e). Next lets look at 27...since 27 is the sum of the 4+23 above I guess its just a trap answer so eliminate (d). now look at 23, 23 is just one of the numbers from the question stem, eliminate it (C)...now we have B, 18, 18 is a product of 2 and 3. meets both criterias, therefore the likely answer...pick B.


Again I wont do this if I knew how to solve the problem, but I am guessing so why not put some thought into it!
