Number of approaches are possible.

Given: 2^{98}=2^8*L+N --> divide both parts by 2^8 --> 2^{90}=L+\frac{N}{2^8}. Now, as both 2^{90} and L are an integers then \frac{N}{2^8} must also be an integer, which is only possible for N=0 (since 0\leq{N}\leq4).

Answer: A.

N = 2^98 - 256L

For N to be 0 < = N < = 4, value of L should be as high as possible

256L = 2^8 . L

When L = 90, N would be zero

Answer =A
