Answer is 14 : B.

Not sure of any shortcut, but divided 7/27 for first 5 decimals, since 27 is 9*3 and both are repeating decimals and 27 is less than 100.So it seems 259 is repeating.so 84 is a factor of 3, so the 83rd and 84th will be 5,9. So answer is 14.

Bring the denominator to the form of 999

(7 * 37)/(27 * 37) = 259/999

259 will repeat successively --> 83rd and 84th digits are 5 and 9 --> 5 + 9 = 14

Answer: B

(D) 7

(E) 5


7/27= .259.... and the digits repeat themselves.

84 is a factor of three, after every three digits the digits are repeating.

So 84th digit will be= 9

and 83rd digit will be= 5

9+5=14
B is the answer

7/27 = 0,259259...

So, the 84th term, which is a multiple of 3, is equal to 9, and the 83rd term is equal to 5
9+5 = 14
