Statement 1: Tells us that x = 3k where k = 1, 3, 5, 7, ...(Any odd number)
Any such number when divided by 6 will yield a remainder of 3.

Statement 2: Tells us that x = 12k + 3 where k = Any integer.
Again any such number when divided by 6 will yield a remainder of 3.

Therefore, both statements independently answer the question and answer D.

I will give a try

when numerator is less than denominator follow this
3/6 = 0 (quotient) + 3 (remainder)

hope it helps

ok that means in such cases, we can take remainder whether the quotient is less than 0. Thanks for clarification
