   D.) 241

Answer: Option 'B'

In the given numbers if the digit in the hundredth place is removed, it will be as
446 = 46
362 = 62
576 = 76
495 = 95
241 = 41
Maximum number = 95 , 495 is correct answer.

12.

Which of the following number yields maximum remainder, when it is divided by 15? 

   A.) 446
   B.) 362
   C.) 576
   D.) 495

Answer: Option 'A'

Numbers when divided by 15 , we get
446 =446 / 15 => Quotient = 29.73 , Remainder = 11
362 =362 / 15 => Quotient =24.13 ,Remainder = 2
576 =576 / 15 => Quotient =38.4,Remainder = 6
495 =495 / 15 => Quotient = 33, Remainder = 0
241 = 241 / 15 => Quotient = 16.06 , Remainder = 1
Maximum remainder = 11 , 446 is a correct answer.

13.

If the middle digit in all the numbers are removed, then which of the following number will be maximum ?

15.

Which of the following number yields maximum remainder, when it is divided by 14 ?  

   A.) 419
   B.) 383
   C.) 525
   D.) 466

Answer: Option 'A'

Given
The numbers when divided by 14 we get ,
419 =>419 / 14, Quotient => 29.2 Remainder = 13
383 =>383 / 14 ,Quotient => 27.35,Remainder = 5
525 => 525 / 14 Quotient => 37.5,Remainder = 7
466 =>466 / 14 Quotient => 33.4,Remainder = 4
281 =>281 / 14 Quotient => 20.07,Remainder = 1
So 13is maximum remainder , 419 is correct answer.
