Explanation: 14^22 + 6^22 divided by 5
=[(15-1)^22 + (5+1)^22] ÷ 5
=[(-1)^22 + (1)^22] ÷ 5
=(1+1) ÷ 5 = 2/5
Remainder is 2.
Option 3

Please give kudos, if you find my explanation good enough.

There is more method. That is cyclicity.
14^22 + 6^22 divided by 5
Last digit cycle.
For 4: last digit cyclicity 4,6,4,6
For 6:similarly it will be 6,6,6,6
Therefore, we can write 14^22 + 6^22 as below
= 4^22 + 6^22 (as our focus is at last digit only)
Using cyclicity, we know last digit is
= 6+6
=12
12÷5 = 2 which is remainder
Answer is C

Please give kudos, if you find my explanation good enough.
