A.) 6
B.) 11
C.) 21
D.) 35

I get D and this is my method...

since they make an equal number of each type of pack, you can assume that 16x+30X= 46x
Currently, they've produced 241 cards.
if you start to solve 46x=241 you'll begin to see how many complete packs they've made of each type.

You get 5 full packs, and some left over cards. In order to keep with the trend of producing the same number of packs per pack type, they'll need to up the total number of packs produced for each type to 6...

46(6) = 276.
276 - 241 = 35

I hope that makes sense

C
the company can make two type of packs 16 cards and 30 cards
try pluginng values

241 + 6 = 247 = ( Can't be devide b/w 16 and 30, cause multiple of 30 will have last digit 0, so the 7 should come as the last digit of multiple of 16. which is not possible

try 241 + 11 = 252 ....couldn't think of any combination

try 241 + 21 = 262 ....( yup 16*7+30*5.....)

Regular pack = 16 cards
Deluxe pack = 30 cards
---------------------------------------------------------
Total cards = 241 cards

Number of regular packs = N
Number of deluxe packs = N
(Since they produce equal number of both packs)
---------------------------------------------------------
Number of total cards = 46N

46 * 5 = 230
46 * 6 = 276

276 - 241 = 35

I pick (D).
