B should be the ans

say the 7 no's are n , n+1 ,n+2...... n+6

add all of them up and u get 7n+21 and divide by 7 ..
hence remainder is 0

For A data is insufficient .

Why do you say A is insufficient. If range of remainders is 6, then we know that they range from remainfer 0 thru 6...hence we know the sum of the remainders.

what if the remainders are 0,5,5,5,5,5,6 or 0,5,3,3,5,5,6?? The sum definately are not the same!

I'd go for D.

1. seven different numbers are selected so st1 tells us that we've got 7 consecutive numbers

How do u get 7 different numbers to give u consecutive numbers?

what if they are

6, 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42 ?

They are all different numbers between 1 and 100; AND the range is 6.

Its 6 for the first number listed and 0 for all else!!

Please explain!

How is the range 6?

Range = 42 - 6 = 36.

I still don't understand how the OA is B. Looks like D to me...

The source is WWW. About one year ago I found a pile of G-questions with answers on the web, downloaded it on my PC, but later lost the link to that web site. As I remember from the note on that Website these questions very close resemble the real G-questions.
