I am getting D. 13.

98Θ33 = 32 (remainder)
32Θ17 = 15

33Θ17 = 16
98Θ16 = 2

15 - 2 = 13.

Quick way to do this on GMAT.

A remainder of 0 is the same as a remainder equal to the divisor.

98 Θ 33: 99Θ33 = 0 or 33 , 98Θ33 = 33-1=32
32 Θ 17: 34Θ17 = 0 or 17, 32Θ17 = 17-2 = 15

33Θ17: 34Θ17 = 0 or 17, 33Θ17 = 17-1 = 16
98Θ16: 96Θ16 = 0, 18Θ16 = 0+2 = 2.

Answer is 15-2 or 13.
