Is the number x is divisible by 9?
A: The number x can be obtained by taking the difference between a number and another one obtained by reversing the digits.
B: The sum of the digits of x is divisible by 9

My answer was B but OA was A 

A. let a & b be the digits, then 10a+b is one number, and 10b+ a is the revesred number the difference = 9a - 9b = 9(a-b)

Always divisible by 9.

I am not sure why B is wrong though, B may be wrong because we don't know whether x is integer.

I rulled out A because say number is 55 : its reverse will be 55
so 55- 55 =0 ;

0 is divisible by 9?

yes, 0 is divisible by 9.

But, answer should be D. What is the explanation for OA?
