A can be divided by 11
for easy calculations consider A = 22 (if u choose A=11, you shall need those extra miliseconds figuring -ve stats)
As remainder is 1 for the new expression 'say X' and all the answers include only -ve sign
=> Either X could be 12 = A-10 or X could be 1 = A-21
Ans - D. A-10.

Good luck

We could use the following logic:
since A is a multiple of 11, we could very well say A = 11K (where K is 1,2...n).
The condition here should now be
11K + 1 = <operation> such that it gives us an integer
11k +1 = A -20 => A = 11K + 21 Not divisible by 11
11K +1 = A -12 => A = 11K + 31 Not Divisible by 11
11K +1 = A -9 => A = 11K + 10 Not Divisible by 11
11K +1 = A -10 => A = 11K + 11 Divisible by 11
11K +1 = A -13 => A = 11K + 14 Not Divisible by 11

Answer therefore is A -10 (D)

E. A-13.

If $$A = 11n + 0$$, then A is a multiple of 11. A could be 11, 22, 33, 44, etc.

Looking at the answer choices' subtracted numbers, to avoid negative numbers and numbers less than 11, let A = 33.

We want $$\frac{(A - n)}{11}$$ leaves remainder 1.

A) A-20. (33 - 20) = 13. NO. $$\frac{13}{11}$$ has R2

B) A-12. (33 - 12) = 21. NO. $$\frac{21}{11}$$ has R10

C) A-9. (33 - 9) = 24. NO. $$\frac{24}{11}$$ has R2

D) A-10. (33 - 10) = 23. YES. $$\frac{23}{11}$$ has R1

E) A-13. (33 - 13) = 20. NO. $$\frac{20}{11}$$ has R9
