a)4

b)15

c)0

d)18

[CAT 2004 Question, Remainder Question, Number System, CAT Question]

Solution :

We know that

So, We can conclude from the above formulae that is always divisible by (a+b).

Hence , is always divisible by (15+19) = 38

Now, if any number is divisible by 38 , then that number will also be divisible by 19 as 38 is a multiple of 19.

Hence, the remainder obtained , when is divided by 19 = 0.

Hence, OPTION(c)

This can also be solved in another way :

This way also, we see that , it is divisible by 19. Hence, the remainder obtained is 0.
