(( 98 Θ 33 ) Θ 17 )
The remainder of 98 divided by 33 is 32;
The remainder of 32 divided by 17 is 15;

( 98 Θ (33 Θ 17))
The remainder of 33 divided by 17 is 16;
The remainder of 98 divided by 16 is 2.

15 - 2 = 13.

Answer: D.

We have to be JUST careful on the bracket part..
(( 98 Θ 33 ) Θ 17 ) - ( 98 Θ (33 Θ 17))..........
98 divided by 33 will give 32 as remainder as 33*3 =99 and 33 divided by 17 will give 16 as remainder..
(32 Θ 17 ) - ( 98 Θ 16)......... 15 - 2 = 13..

Let’s start with the first set of parentheses before the minus sign:

98/33 = 2 remainder 32

Next we have:

32 Θ 17

32/17 = 1 remainder 15

So, (( 98 Θ 33 ) Θ 17 ) = 15.

Let’s move to the second set of parentheses after the minus sign:

33/17 = 1 remainder 16

Next we have:

98 Θ 16 = 6 remainder 2

Thus, ( 98 Θ (33 Θ 17)) = 2.

So, (( 98 Θ 33 ) Θ 17 ) - ( 98 Θ (33 Θ 17)) = 15 - 2 = 13

Answer: D
