Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
The question is just badly written then. I have the same answer as venksune
5/12--> remainder is 5
13/12--> remainder is 1
It's obvious the question is either badly written or there is a typo in the question itself

If n is a prime number greater than 3, what is the remainder when n is divided by 12?
A)0 B)1 C)2 D)3 E)5
Please give details of your solution.
If I were to take a guess, I would say that n should be replaced with n^2. Now try the problem. The proof is a little challenging, but not hard (this is a dumb GMAT question because all you have to do is try one number and see what the remainder is).
