What is the least integer N such that when divided by 25 or 7 it leaves remainder 1?

a) 76
b) 101
c) 126
d) 151
e) 176

The OA is E, but I disagree.

I don't think the logic is correct in this question. I interpreted the question as "If N/25 leaves a remainder of 1" OR "If N/7 leaves a remainder of 1". An "OR" operator indicates that only one condition has to pass, therefore the answer should be A.

76 / 25 = 3 with a remainder of 1
76 is the smallest digit available.

E is right answer

As Q ask N is the integer either you divide it by 25 or by 7 reminder should be 1

Only E satisfy this condition. Here Examiner is looking to N integer which can fulfill both conditions

Thanks
