4^1000 = 4 ( 4^999 ) = 4 ( 64^333 ) = 4 ( ( 63 + 1 ) ^ 333 )

All the terms in the expansion of ( 63 + 1 )^333 shall contain 63 except the last term i.e. 1
So 4 shall be the remainder.

Please update the OA.

OA: C

Remainder
$$\frac{4^1}{7} = \frac{4}{7} = 4$$
$$\frac{4^2}{7} = \frac{16}{7} = 2$$
$$\frac{4^3}{7} = \frac{64}{7} = 1$$
$$\frac{4^4}{7} = \frac{256}{7} = 4$$
$$\frac{4^5}{7} = \frac{1024}{7} = 2$$

Remainder when $$4^n$$ divided by 7 has a cyclicity of 3

$$4^{1000} =4^{3*333+1}$$
So remainder will be 4

$$4^{1000}$$
=$$(4^3)^{333}$$ x4
= $$64^{333}$$ x 4
remainder when $$4^{1000}$$ is divided by 7 = remainder when $$64^{333}$$ x 4 is divided by 7
Remainder $$(64^{1000})$$/7 X Remainder $$\frac{4}{7}$$
$$1^{333}$$ X 4
= 4
Remainder = 4
