Divisor should be greater than remainder.

So Remainder can't be n...

IMO option D.

Let me know if I am missing anything.

Divisor should always be greater than remainder so n cannot be a remainder.

Don't hesitate if you have any question.

Straight (D)

Had n been the reminder of number m when divided by n , then the results would have been no remainder....

n/n = 1 and no remainder..

Hence answer has to be (D)...

Simple. Divisor can never be remainder. If so, it will increase the quotient by 1.

Answer:D
When positive integer m is divided by positive integer n, which of the following CANNOT be the remainder?
A. m−n: consider m=n=3 ⇒ R=0=m-n
B. n−m: consider m=n=3 ⇒ R=0=n-m
C. m: consider m=1 and n=3 ⇒ R=1
D. n: divisor cannot be equal to the remainder
E. m−2n: consider m=8 and n=3 ⇒ R=2=m-2n
