C it is..........88 can be factored into 11 & 8.stem one the divisor is 11 and stem 2 the divisor is 3X/24 or X/8....hence sufficient!!

I used trial and error to arrive at the answer. Please show your method if you have better one.

Ans is C.

Kind of series it is.

from 1, 11a + 3 = x
from 2, 8b + 4 = x

implies, 11a = 8b + 1

Pairs: (a, b) = (11, 15), (19, 26), (27, 37) ..............
x = 121, 209, 297 ..............

In all the above cases remainder is 33.

cheers
