If y is an integer, then the least possible value of |23 - 5y| is

(A) 1 (B) 2 (C) 3 (D) 4 (E) 5

isn't the best answer E.. where |23-(5*5)|=|23-25|=|-2|=2

but the source from where i got this question states it to be option B confused here!

Hey, I know this question

It's from

OG12, sample question #50.

OA is actually true. They ask us the value of \(|23 - 5y|\), not the value of \(y\).

The minimal value of \(|23 - 5y|\) is 2, when \(y=5\), but answer is 2, not 5
