M = x*10 + y
N = 10*y + x

so:

x*10 + y + 10*y + x = 11*y + 11*x = 11*(y+x)

so the answer cannot be a multiply of 11

only answer (A) comply

A.

1st integer = MN = 10M + N
2nd integer = NM = 10N + M

Sum = 10M + N + 10N + M = 11M + 11N = 11 (M+N)
Therefore, sum of M+N is a multiple of 11. Anything that isn't a multiple of 11 in the answer choices is out answer. 181 is it.
