D.

1. X(mod9)=(a+b)mod9=11(mod9)=2(mod9)
1. (X+7)mod9=0 ==> X+7=9n ==> X=9n-7 or X=9(n-1)+2 X(mod9)=2(mod9)

What's mod9?

a(mod b)- reminder (a divided by b)

for example,
56(mod 11)=1(mod 11) ==> 56=11n+1

FROM 1

A,B <10 THUS A,B = (9,2)OR (7,4) OR (5,6) OR (2.9) 0R (4,7)..ETC.......SUFF ALWAYS REMINDER WILL BE 2.

X+7 = 9K IE: X = 9K-7 , 9K - 7 / 9 RMINDER IS ALWAYS 2..SUFF

D is my answer
