(A) 12 (B) 13 (C) 14 (D) 15 (E) 16

q = 45.24*v = 45v + 0.24*v

0.24*v = two digit integer
10<= (6/25)*v <100
1.xxx <= (1/25)*v < 16.xxx
the number of multiples of 25 between 1.xx and 16.xx
Thus, 16-2+1=15

D it is!

Nice work! OA and OE

I need to think of more challenging questions. Did you like the one about the obtuse triangles around the clock?

24 Can be expressed as 6/25.So for getting two digit remainder 6/25 has to be multiple of 1,2,3,4...untill the value of 6*n becomes three digit
6*2=12
6*3=18
....
.....
6*16=96(two digit number)

hence total 15 numbers
