A. 5
B. 7
C. 11
D. 14
E. 21


K = 35Q+14

When Q = 1..

K = 49 ...it is divisible by 7

When Q = 2

K = 84..it is divisible by 7 and 21..

when Q = 3.

K = 109.

it is divisible by 7...

IMO option B.

A pretty straight forward answer.

k = 35Q + 14 where Q is the quotient (Q = 0,1,2,3,.....)

Plug in numbers for Q to get values of k to test. So K could be 35,49,84 etc....

So only 7 satisfies the divisibility test. Hence answer B. Guess its a 550 question

SOLUTION 1:

Assume some alues of Integer as per given constraint which is a number that leaves remainder 14 when divided by 35

First value of k = 35+14 = 49
Second value of k = 35+49 = 84
Third value of k = 35+84 = 119... and so on...

Now we see all these values of k are NOT divisible by 5 (Option A ruled out)
Now we see all these values of k are divisible by 7 (Option B RETAINED)
Now we see all these values of k are NOT divisible by 11 (Option C ruled out)
Now we see all these values of k are NOT divisible by 14 (Option D ruled out)
Now we see all these values of k are NOT divisible by 21 (Option E ruled out)

Answer: Option B

SOLUTION 2:

k = 35x + 14


Now we see both these parts of equation are divisible by 7 (Option B )

Answer: Option B

49 is divisible by only 7 ( Among the options presented )

So, Correct answer is (B) 7

Bunuel Shouldn't this be under divisibility rules? Right now this is under distance/rates

\(K = 35Q+14 = 7(5Q+2)\). Hence K is a multiple of \(7\) so must always be divisible by \(7\)

Option B

We can create the following equation:

k = 35Q + 14

We see that 35Q + 14 is divisible by 7.

Answer: B
