(1) The tens' digit of 11^n is 4.
(2) The hundreds' digit of 5^n is 6.


The units digit of \(11^n\) for any positive integer (n) is always 1. Also, the tens digit of \(11^n\), follows a cyclic order, and assumes all the values from 0-9.

\(11^1 = 11\)
\(11^2 = X21\)
\(11^3 = XX31\)
\(11^4 = XXX41\) and so on

The tens and units digit for \(5^n\), is always 25, for\(n\geq2\). The hundreds digit keeps switching between 1 for n = odd OR as 6 for n = even

From F.S 1, we would have the tens digit as 4 for n = 4, and then again for n = (4+10) = 14. Insufficient.

From F. S 2, we would have the hundreds digit as 6 for n = 4,6,8 and so on. Insufficient.

Even after combing both fact statements, n could be n = 4 or n = 14. Insufficient.

E.

E.

1) 11^1 = 11
11^2 = 121
11^3 = 1331
11^4 = 14641
.
.
.
11^10 mod 100 = 01
(taking mod 100 or remainder by 100 as that gives the ten's digit)
after this the cycle repeats
11^14 will also have ten's digit as 4.
11^n will have ten's digit as 4 for n = 4,14,24,...
So, insufficient.

2) 5^4 = 625
5^14 mod 1000 = 625
so here also n would be 4,14,...

E is therefore the answer.
