(Answer_choice - 4) should NOT be divisible by 9.

Only 57 follows.

hence D

If a number is divisible by 9, the sum of its digits must be divisible by 9. --> If a number leaves a remainder 4 when divided by 9 the sum of its digits must be 4.

57 = 5 + 7 = 12--> 1 + 2 = 3

Answer: D

When it comes to remainders, we have a nice rule that says:
If N divided by D, leaves remainder R, then the possible values of N are R, R+D, R+2D, R+3D,. . . etc.
For example, if k divided by 5 leaves a remainder of 1, then the possible values of k are: 1, 1+5, 1+(2)(5), 1+(3)(5), 1+(4)(5), . . . etc.

So, if p is divided by 9, leaves a remainder 4, then the possible values of p are: 4, 4+9, 4+(2)(9), 4+(3)(9), ...etc
In other words, the possible values of p are 4, 13, 22, 31, 40, 49, 58, 67...
As you can see, 57 is not in the list.
Answer: D

P is of the form 9n + 4

On checking the options:

A. 13 = 9 + 4
B. 31 = 9*3 + 4
C. 49 = 9*5 + 4
D. 57. This cannot be expressed as 9n + 4
E. 67 = 9*7 + 4

Correct Option: D

p / 9 = k (4) with k the quotient and 4 the remainder
--> p = 9k + 4
--> possible value of p : 4, 13, 22, 31, 40, 49, 58, 67...
All answer choices fit, except 57...

answer D

The number can be expressed in the form of 9x+4 where x can 0,1,2,3,4....
by evaluating the answer choices carefully we can clearly observe that 57 is the only number which can't be expressed in the form of 9x+4
In other words we can also say that the (answer - 4) will not be divisible by 9.57 is the number which doesn't follow this condition
Correct Answer - D

p-4 has to be a multiple of 9
57-4=53, which isn't
D
