OA is wrong
C is the right ans
because on subtracting 16 from 10^20, we have only 19 nos left.
17 are 9 and last two are 8 and 4.
so sum= 17*9+8+4=165


As explained in the post above the OA is correct.

10-6 always gives 4 in the units place ..the only answer choice that has 4 in the units place is D.



i liked the way u have answered mate....no need of calculation, but just keen observation.. +1 to u



well, the above shortcut just gives the last digit of the number obtained after subtraction and not the last digit of the sum of digits of the number obtained after subtraction.
Its just a coincidence that the last digit of the number after subtraction and the sum of digits of the number after subtraction was same in this case.
