Here is the Solution =>
let n = 9^2p × 5^(p+q) + 11^q × 6^pq
Rule used => The remainder whenever an integer is divided by 10 is same as its units digit.
As a side note => In order to get the remainder with 2,5 or 10 --> We just need the units digit.
So we actually need the units digit of n
Applying the concept of cyclicity

Units digit of n=> 1*5+1*6=>5+6 =>1
Hence the units digit will be one and so will the remainder when n is divided by 10.
Hence B
