### Question

x should be replaced by which minimum number so that 828517x265 is completely divisible by 9?

**A**

1.

**B**

2.

**C**

4.

**D**

3.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

If the above number has to be divisible by 9, the sum of the digits, i.e., 8 + 2 + 8 + 5 + 1 + 7 + x + 2 + 6 + 5, should be divisible by 9. So we can see that $x + 44$ should be divisible by 9. By inspection, x = 1.
