Lets say u=5, and t=1. So the number is 51.
Reverse number = 15.
So with u=5, t=1, if we substitute in the options, we should get an answer of 15.

Its easy to see that in option A, 10*1 + 5 = 15.
In no other option is the number 15.

Given u represents the tens' digit and t represents the unit digit,
the Original number will be 10u + t, now the digit has interchanged their places, t becomes tens' digit and u becomes the unit digit
hence the new number (after interchange) will be 10t + u.

Given : u represents the tens' digit of a certain number and t represents the units' digit; Hence, currently the number is $$10u+t$$
If the digits are reversed , t will be the tens' digit and u will be the units' digit. Thus the number will be $$10t+u$$..............................Hence A
