When a number divided by 35, the remainder is 2;divided by 31, the remainder is 3.

If Im faced with a problem like this do I just simply go directly to the answer choices and try to arrive at the answer by trial and error. Tried the chinese remainder theorem on this one took too much time

It depends on the choices given

When a number divided by 35, the remainder is 2
this suggests that this number must have last digit as 7 or 2. We can eliminate some choices and then trial and error on the other choices.
