I m considering $$(2467) ^ {153} * (341) ^{72}$$

since the unit digits of 341^ any number is 1. We basically need to find the units digit of $$2467 ^{153}$$

Unit digit of $$2467 ^{153}$$ is remainder of $$2467 ^{153}$$ when divided by 10

= 7^153

7^1 =7
7^2 = 49
7^3 = 343
7^4 = ...1
7^5 = ...7

remainder of $$7^{153}$$= remainder of $$7^{152} * 7^1$$ = 7 ( because 152 is multiple of 4 and 7^4 = ....1)

Hence D

It is not clear to me .Can u state the the question again as it is confusing to me because of power and multiplication sign.Thanks.

Thanks.. Your answer is correct. I am little confused with the solution here

7^1 =7
7^2 = 49
7^3 = 343
7^4 = ...1
7^5 = ...7

what does it mean ?

It means the last digit because that only we are needing for this question.

We only have to look at the first part of a equation, as the second part will always end in 1, having no affect on the first part. If we know that 7 has a cyclicity of 4 (what gurpeet showed), we can simply divided

153/4

which gives us the remainder 1.

7^1 ends in 7 (as does 7^5), so the product also ends in 7.

unit digit of 341^72 will be 1.
unti digit of (2467)^153 will be same as that of 7^1 (153 mod 4 = 1)

7^x = 7 9 3 1 (repeats)
Where x starts from 1
Hence, units digit of 7^10 = units digit of 7^150 = 9
& units digit of 7^153 = 7

1^72 = 1

Hence ans = 7

It will be good to memorize the foll for exam day:
$$2^x$$ = 2 4 8 6
$$3^x$$= 3 9 7 1
$$4^x$$ = 4 6
$$5^x$$ = 5
$$6^x$$ = 6
$$7^x$$ = 7 9 3 1
$$8^x$$ = 8 4 2 6
$$9^x$$ = 9 1
$$10^x$$ = 0

Cyclicity of 7 is 4

So, $$(2467)^{153} = (2467)^{4*38} 2467$$

Unit's digit of (2467)^{4*38} will be 1

Now, Units digit of $$(2467)^{4*38} 2467$$ will be 1 * 7 = 7

$$(341)^{72}$$ will have unit's digit as 1

So, $$(2467)^{153} (341)^{72}$$ will have units digit as $$7*1 = 7$$

Hence answer will be (D) 7

here 7^2=49
7^3=343
7^4=...1(unit digit)
7^152=...1(unit digit)
152 is the multiple of 4 (38*4). The question is 152 is also the multiple of of 2(76*2)..then why 4 is taken?
