A. any integer that fits to the expression (6k+4) is not the answer. 86 = 6k+2, so it is the required answer..

m= 6k+1 , N = 6x+3

m+n = 6k+6x+4 = 2(3k+3x+2)

devide given by 2 ( 43-26-17-14-5)

now subtract 2 from each and see which is not a multiple of 3

(41 - 24 - 15 - 12 - 3)


41 is out , ie: answer is A

Ok my theory is that in this case when M+N is divided by 6 the remainder has to be 3+1=4

Only 86 does not satisfy this condition hence Ans is A).
