(E) $$\frac{x}{17}$$

x/6 leaves a remainder of 4 i.e. the number could be 4, 10, 16, 22, 28, 34, 40....
Let us check the options.
A) x/2 = Integer, if x=4,10,16...--Eliminate
B) x/3 = Not integer, HOLD
C) x/7 = Integer, if x=28 --Eliminate
D) x/11 = Integer, if x=22 --Eliminate
E) x/17 = Integer, if x=34 --Eliminate.

Note : If any number is not divisible by 3 it's not divisible by 6.

X is not divisible by 6. So, x is not divisible by 3.

Possibles values of x are { 4 , 10 , 16 , 22, 28, 34......................}

(A) Possible as all the numbers are divisible by 2
(B) Not possible as none of the number is divisible by 3
(C) Possible, 28 is divisible by 7
(D) Possible , 22 is divisible by 11
(E) Possible, 34 is divisible by 7

Since when x is divided by 6, the remainder is 4, x can be the following:

4, 10, 16, 22, 28, 34, ...

So we see that x will never be a multiple of 3.
