A. I only B. II only C. I & II only D.I & III only E. I, II, &III I. [3n+1] means remainder when 7*(3n+1) is divided by 3.. 21n+7 div by 3. 21n is divisible by 3 and 7 leaves a remainder of 1.....YES II. [3n] 7*3n is divisible by 3 so 0....not 1.....ans NO III. [3n]+2 [3n] is divisible by 3, so remainder will be 2....ans NO Only I A

A. I only B. II only C. I & II only D.I & III only E. I, II, &III I. [3n+1] is the remainder when 7(3n+1) is divided by 3. Or, Rem((21n+7)/3)=Rem(21n/3)+Rem(7/3)=0+1=1 So,[3n+1] =1 II.[3n] is the remainder when 7(3n) is divided by 3. Or,Rem(21n/3)=0 So, [3n]=1 III.From II, we have obtained , [3n]=0 So, [3n]+2=0+2=0 So, the expression in I, yields a value of 1. Ans. (A)

Hence, [3n]+2 = 2 Hence Only I gives remainder as 1. Answer A. Thanks, GyM

=> Statement I \(7(3n+1) = 21n + 7 = 3(7n+2) + 1\) Thus, \([3n+1] = 1\) Statement II \(7(3n) = 21n = 3*7n + 0\) Thus, \([3n] = 0\) Statement III Since \([3n] = 0\), we have \([3n] + 2 = 2.\) Thus, only \([3n+1]\) equals \(1\). Therefore, the answer is A. Answer: A

A. I only B. II only C. I & II only D.I & III only E. I, II, &III Let’s analyze each Roman numeral. I. [3n+1] [3n+1] is the remainder when 7(3n + 1) = 21n + 7 is divided by 3. Since 21n is divisible by 3, we see that [3n+1] is equal to the remainder when 7 is divided by 3, which is 1. So I is true. II. [3n] [3n] is the remainder when 7(3n) = 21n is divided by 3. Since 21n is divisible by 3, we see that the remainder is 0. So II is not true. III. [3n] + 2 We saw that in Roman numeral II, [3n] has a remainder 0 when it’s divided by 3. So [3n] + 2 has a remainder of 2 when it’s divided by 3. III is not true. Answer: A

Thanks, GyM hey GyMrAT how did you get remainer of 1? would like to see detailed solution of correct answer choice. thanks for taking time to explain have a great weekend I. [3n+1] means remainder when 7(3n+1) = 21n + 7 is divided by 3, we get remainder as 1. Hence [3n+1] = 1

[3n+1] means remainder when 7(3n+1) = 21n + 7 is divided by 3, we get remainder as 1. Hence [3n+1] = 1 (21n + 7)/3 = 21n/3 + 7/3 , we get remainder as 0 for 21n/3 & 1 for 7/3, hence final remainder is (0 + 1) = 1 I think it is called Remainder theorem, which states if \(R_1\) , \(R_2\) & \(R_3\) are remainders when \(N_1\), \(N_2\) & \(N_3\) are each divided by D then,\(\frac{(N_1 + N_2  N_3)}{D}\) the remainder will be \(R_1 + R_2  R_3\) I hope it is helpful.
