A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5 197J represents the distance between 19 and 7J on the number line. Now, the distance will be minimized when 7J, which is multiple of 7, is closest to 19. Multiple of 7 which is closest to 19 is 21 (for J=3), so the least distance is 2: 1921 = 2.

A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5 When J \(= 2\)
\(7\)J \(= 7 * 2 = 14\)
\(197\)J\( = 1914 = 5 = 5\)
When J \(= 3\)
\(7\)J \(= 7 * 3 = 21\)
\(197\)J\( = 1921 = 2 = 2\)
Therefore LEAST possible value of \(197\)J\( = 2\)
Answer (B)...

For the value of 19  7J to be , 7J should take a value close to 19. Using J=3, we get 2 as the lowest value. Answer is B

A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5 We need to find a value of 197J that is closest to zero. When J = 2, 197J = 5 = 5. When J = 3, 197J = 2 = 2. Thus, the least possible value of 197J is 2. Answer: B

A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5 In such questions, value of variable "J" is a trap that can be seen in answer choice C, Look for a multiple of 7 nearest to 19. It is 21. Therefore 1921 = 2 (B)
