For a number to be divisible by 25 the last two digits has to be 25. This makes the digit ‘q’ as 2 which is find only in option C. Hence C

number = 2pq5..
number 2pq5 is div by 25, so q has to be 2 or 7..
a,b,and c can be eliminated..
so our answer can be 52 or none of these..

now it is given that pq is multiple of 13...
52 is multiple of 13... 13*4=52

Check using the options...

13 x 4 = 52

And, 2525 is divisible by 25 , hence answer must be (C)

Since 2pq5 is divisible by 25, q5 must be either 25 or 75.

Of the answer choices, only 52 and 65 are multiple of 13. However, only 52 can be pq, because then q5 = 25, making 2pq5 divisible by 25.

How do we know what the question is asking? The number pq i.e 52 or the product pq i.e 10. Qs is not clear in my opinion.
