Hi Rich,
While i was trying to do the maths in my head. All of a sudden i realized that there arent more than 13 cards in each suit.
So i just thought its an easy question and i need to think through. So immediately picked an option that doesnt have a value more than 13.
Luckily it was the correct choice.

Hi hsn81960,

The prompt tells us NOTHING about the number of cards in the deck nor anything about "suits", so you ultimately did get 'lucky' on this question. As an aside, doing work "in your head" is the WORST way to approach a GMAT question (since you'll be far more likely to make a silly mistake - and those types of mistakes tend to cost Test Takers a LOT of points on Test Day).

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
