Q. |
Which digits should come in place of @ and # if the number 62684@# is divisible by both 8 and 5? |

✔ A. |
4, 0 |

✖ B. |
0, 4 |

✖ C. |
4, 4 |

✖ D. |
1, 1 |

**Solution:**

Option(**A**) is correct

Since the given number is divisible by 5, so 0 or 5 must come in place of #.

But, a number ending with 5 is never divisible by 8.

So, 0 will replace #.

Now, the number formed by the last three digits is 4@0, which becomes divisible by 8, if @ is replaced by 4.

Hence, digits in place of @ and # are **4 and 0** respectively.

**Edit:** Thank you **akanksha** and **pratik**, based on your inputs Option 4 has been changed from '0, 0' to '1, 1' now.

hey 440 and 400 are both divisible by 8

then what can be the answer.............

answer should be a) and d).

62684@#

So, in place of # it should be either 0 or 5, but here 5 is not here.

So,fine # should be 0 here.

for divisible by 8,last three digits of the required number should be completely divisible by 8.

ie 4@0

in place of @, it should be 0 and 4 both.

Because 400 and 440 both should be divisible by 8.

So,answer is a) and d).

Hello,

I think the right answer is option d. 440 is not divisible by 8.

how can u say like this 440 is divisible by 8, 440/8 is 55, both a and d is right

Thank you, Pratik for letting me know the issue. Modified the value of option D.
