Which of the following number is divisible by 24 ?
Answer : Option D
Explanation :
24 = 3 x8, where 3 and 8 coprime.
Clearly, 35718 is not divisible by 8, as 718 is not divisible by 8.
Similarly, 63810 is not divisible by 8 and 537804 is not divisible by 8.
Consider option (D),
Sum of digits = (3 + 1 + 2 + 5 + 7 + 3 + 6) = 27, which is divisible by 3.
Also, 736 is divisible by 8.
3125736 is divisible by (3 x 8), i.e., 24.
