Any number (regardless of number of digits) with the last 2 digits that are divisble by 4 is divisble by 4


out of 1,2,3,4,5

xx12, xx24, xx32, xx52

thus 3!x4 = 24

Yes! The answer is 24

I missed 24. How one can make sure that he/she gets all the numbers
divided by 4 in these kind of questions. These kind of questions tend to
take more time for me. Any suggestions?

Just know the characteristics of some base numbers - that will save you some time.

e.g., multiples of 2,3,4,5,..etc.

Like I said - multiples of 4 - the last two digits will always be multiples of 4.

Multiples of 2 will always be even (obviously)

Multiples of 5 will always end in 0 or 5.

Multiples of 10 will always end in 0.

Shubanghi,

Yes it shouldn't be 3! per se just (3x2) - which conveniently is the same as 3!

thus for xx12 3 letters for the first number x 2 letters that we can choose from the numbers that are left.
