number is of form 35K + 2, or 31x + 3

35K + 2 = 31 X + 3
or 31x + 1 is divisible by 35

put values for x as 0,1,2,3, and see for which values it is divisible by 35.

x=9 gives 280 which is divisible by 35.

so the number is 31*9 + 3 = 282

if 282 is not in ans choices, keep adding the LCM of 31 and 35, in this case their product since they are coprime, to the smallest solution ie 282, each number upon adding the LCM to 282 will give the same two remainders respectively.
