Remainder = 16-1 = 15

Please explain why we cannot consider Option A= -1.

As per me, this question should have two answers= -1 & 15. ( NEGATIVE & POSITIVE REMAINDERS )

Please explain the logic behind.

Remainder is ALWAYS positive. If you ever get a negative remainder. Just add the divisor to the negative remainder.

Ex: What's the remainder when 31 is divided by 16.

32 is completely divisible by 16. Hence for 31 we get a negative remainder of -1. Adding the divisor, we get -1+16 = 15.

Hope it's clear
