1. A 3-digit number 4a3 is added to another 3-digit number 984 to give a 4-digit number 13b7, which is divisible by 11. Then, (a + b) = ?

2.  A. 10 B. 11 C. 12 D. 15

Answer : Option A

Explanation :

4 a 3  |
9 8 4  }  ==> a + 8 = b  ==>  b - a = 8
13 b 7  |
Also, 13 b7 is divisible by 11      (7 + 3) - (b + 1) = (9 - b)   (9 - b) = 0   b = 9 (b = 9 and a = 1)     (a + b) = 10.
