A. 2
B. 3
C. 4
D. 5
E. 6


Assume n = 25
Remainder (n/21) = 4

n+16 = 41
Remainder (41/7) = 6
Option E

B. 3
C. 4
D. 5
E. 6


Here's an alternate solution:
When n is divided by 21, the remainder is 4
So, n = 21k + 4
What is the remainder when n + 16 is divided by 7?
n + 16 = 21k + 20
Or, n + 16 = 21k + 14 + 6
Both 21k and 14 are divisible by 7, but 6 is not.
Hence, answer is E. 6

Since 21 is a multiple of 7 and 4 is smaller than 7, then n divided by 7 also yields a remainder of 4
So : 4 + 16 = 20/7, remainder = 6
Answer E
