A. 6,030,053 B. 6,030,054 C. 6,030,055 D. 6,030,056 E. 6,030,057 hi, the NORMAL method could be .. Sum of squares of 1005 positive integers  Sum of squares of first 999 positive integers..But here we can see that in ALL choices , the UNITS digit is different... SO, finding units digit should be sufficient..\(1,000^2 + 1,001^2 +1,002^2 + 1,003^2 + 1,004^2 + 1,005^2\) THe units digit sum would be\(0^2 + 1^2 +2^2 +3^2 +4^2 + 5^2 = 0+1+4+9+16+25..\) so units digit = 5 ans C

Interesting problem.
I think key is to notice that all the given answer choices differs in last two digits. Therefore, our entire focus should be to figure out how the given terms contribute to last two digits of total.
1000^2 > 00 1001^1 > 01 . . . 1005^2 > 25
Total > *55 Answer C.
Any other approach or better explanations most welcome.
