Pretty old question.

Ok so we know that s/t = 64.12 => s/t = 64 + 0.12

So basically whatever was the remainder [lets say x]: x/t = 0.12 => x = 0.12t.

Now x has to be an integer less than t such that 0.12t is an integer.

Lets take each value one by one
x=2 => t = 2/0.12 ... t is not an integer
...
x=45 => t= 45/0.12 ... integer [Only possible]

So E

It is simple. the answer is E. 45

cos' all are even numbers including 64.12 and given answers except 45.
cos reminder is something that it can't be divided anymore.
