Not sure what "only A" means for answer choice E. I think you mean "E) only 1"

1) Remainder is always positive - NOT TRUE. The remainder can also be zero.
ELIMINATE A, B and E

Note: Now that we've narrowed the correct answer down to B or D, we need not check statement 2, since both answer choices state that statement 2 is true (which is it)

3) Remainder is always less than the divisor. TRUE. If positive integer K is divided by D, we know that 0 < remainder < D
