NO (b) 14........ 14+2=16... NO (c) 16........ 16+2=18... NO (d) 26........ 26+2=28.. YES (e) 32........ 32+2=34... NO ans D

If an integer leaves remainder 4 with 14,it will leave the same remainder when divided by 7. So,we need to find a number that leaves rem 4 when div by 7 A.7p+6+10=>rem. 2(when div by 7) B.7p+6+14=>rem. 6 C.7p+6+16=>rem. 1 D.7p+6+26=>rem. 4 (Eureka!) E.7p+6+32=>rem. 3 Ans=D

From the question  P = 7I + 6 ......1) P + x = 14I + 4 ......2) Where I is a constant
Therefore, x=7I  2 ...... From 1 & 2
From the options D) 7x42 = 26

[As Dividend = Divisor*Quotient + Remainder ] P= 7q+6 > 1 [q is an integer] Now ,Let S = 14t+4 > 2 [ t is an integer & S= P+ New number] Equation 2 Equation 1 SP = 14t+47q6 P+New numberP = 7(q2t)2 New number= 7*interger2 New number+2= 7*interger Above equation implies that (new number + 2) is divisible by 7 , hence check which answer option +2 is divisible by 7 ANS: D [ 26+2=28]

Solution Given:• p is an even integer ………. (1) • When p is divided by 7, the remainder is 6 …………. (2) To find:• Which of the given answer choices, when added to p, gives a sum that leaves a remainder of 4 when divided by 14 Approach and Working: • From statement (2), we can write ‘p’ in the form, N = Q*D + R, as: • And, from statement (1), we know that p is n even integer.
o Implies, 7a + 6 is an even integer o Since, 6 is an even number, 7a must be even [even + even = even] o For 7a to be even,
‘a’ must be even, since, 7 is an odd number [odd * even = even] o Thus, let’s assume a = 2b, where b is a positive integer o Therefore, p = 7 * 2b + 6 = 14b + 6 ………………………………………. (3) • Now, let’s assume the number that has to be added to p as ‘n’,
o Thus, the sum will be = p + n = 14b + 6 + n …………………………… (4) o This can be written as, 14b + (n+2) + 4 • We are given that the sum leaves a remainder of 4, when divided by 14,
o That is, 14b + (n+2) + 4 leaves a remainder of 4, when divided by 14 o Implies, 14b + (n+2) must be divisible by 14
14b is always divisible by 14 Thus, n+2 must be divisible by 14 For this, ‘n’ can take the values of the form, 12 + 14k, where k is an integer Verifying the options, only option D, which is equal to 26, satisfies this condition. Hence, the correct answer is option D. Answer: D
