2) Answer (B)

## Let the number 'n' belong to the set A.

Hence, the remainder when n is divided by 2 is 1

The remainder when n is divided by 3 is 2

The remainder when n is divided by 4 is 3

The remainder when n is divided by 5 is 4 and

The remainder when n is divided by 6 is 5

## So, when (n+1) is divisible by 2,3,4,5 and 6.

Hence, (n+1) is of the form 60k for some natural number k.

And n is of the form 60k-1

## Between numbers 0 and 100, only 59 is of the form above and

hence the correct answer is 1

## a=7 and a+2 = R = 9

## CAT Algebra Questions

5) Answer (D)

Since in all three cases the last digit is 1, the number should

give remainder 1 when divided individually by 2,3,5 . So the

no. may be 31 or 91 . Now 31 in base 2,3 and 5 give first digit

as 1 in all the 3 cases while 91 gives exactly two out of the

three cases the leading digit as 1. Hence option D.
