Given an expression 13n=11/n which can also be written as a/13! 

What would be the remainder if a is divided by 11?

(A)

3

(B)

5

(C)

7

(D)

9



Answer: (D)

Explanation:

We have, a/13! = 1/1 + 1/2 + 1/3 … + 1/13 a = 13!/1 + 13!/2 + 13!/3 … + 13!/13 Clearly, all the terms in the summation are divisible by 11 except 13!/11. We can rewrite it as 13*12*11*…*2*1 / 11 = 13*12*10! We have to find the remainder for 13*12*10! / 11. But, we know, remainder for ((n-1)!/n) = -1. Then, Remainder for 13*12*10! / 11 = 2*1*(-1) = -2. Converting the negative remainder to positive, -2+11 = 9.
