So x +3 = 10k ( k is an integer)
So x= 10k-3 i.e. 7,17,27...
Now divide any of the above number by 5
The remainder wl always be 2

Another way to solve such questions is to take the minimum value of x such that the expression (x+3)/10 is a positive integer.

I can take x = 17, meaning (x+3)/10 = 2.

Hence, when 17 is divided by 5 remainder is 2. Hence C.

x+3/10= int implies x+3 is div by 10

x =10-3 = 7
Possible values of x can be obtained by adding the dividend 10
x= 7,17,27,37
When any possible x is divided by 5; the remainder is always 2.

Option C

Since (x+3)/10 is a positive integer, we can let x = 7, 17, 27, etc.

We see that when any of these values for x is divided by 5, the remainder is 2.

Answer: C
