If the number 7254*98 is divisible by 22, the digit at * is
A. 1

B. 2

C. 6

D. 0

Answer :

Take the alternating sum of the digits in the number, read from left to right. If that is divisible by 11, so is the original number.


7 – 2 + 5 – 4 + * - 9 + 8 = (5 + *)


For 7254 * 98 to be divisible by 11,


(5 + *) must also be divisible by 11


Hence, 5 + * = 11


* = 11 - 5


= 6
