34041 - 32506 = 1535
find one of the numbers that can divide perfectly into 1535.
from the numbers shown, the only number that makes sense that they can be multiplied by and come close is 5.
D and E are out because is ~ 2000
Try B...307x5 = 1535

34041=KN+r
32506=MN+r

1535= (K-M)N is the difference, N has to be mutliple of 1535 ..307 is the only ..possibility..

answer is B even if you don't know the steps to solve it systematicaly
just pick an answer choice and divide both the numbers with it.

In this case option B gives same remainder......

Quick and fast way to solve a quant prob
