Nice question.

9a*5b = 1035.

Note: a and b both are positive integers.

we are asked to find out maximum value of a - b.

In order to do so, a has to be max and b has to be minimum.

So, b=1.

9a * 5*1 = 1035

9a = 207

a = 23.

a - b = 23 - 1 = 22.


D is the correct answer.

9a*5b= 1035
a*b=23
a=23 ; b=1
a-b = 22
IMO D
