$$56+29 = 85$$

$$\frac{85}{8}$$ gives $$5$$ as remainder. Ans - C.

Least possible number is 29

29 divided by 8 will result in remainder as 5

$$\frac{N}{56}$$ = a + $$\frac{29}{56}$$

N = 56a + 29

N = (8)(7)a + 29

$$\frac{N}{8}$$ = 7a + $$\frac{29}{8}$$

$$\frac{29}{8}$$ = 3 + R5

Or, 8 is a factor of N, so the original remainder 29 can be divided by 8; that remainder is the answer.
