The difference of two numbers is 1365. On dividing the larger number by the smaller, we get 6 as quotient and the 15 as remainder. What is the smaller number ?

### Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option B

Explanation: Let the smaller number be x. Then larger number = (x + 1365).

x + 1365 = 6x + 15

5x = 1350

x = 270

Smaller number = 270.

72519 x 9999 = ?

### Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option A

Explanation: 72519 x 9999 = 72519 x (10000 - 1)

= 72519 x 10000 - 72519 x 1

= 725190000 - 72519

= 725117481.

If the number 517 * 324 is completely divisible by 3, then the smallest whole number in the place of * will be:

### Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option C

The smallest 3 digit prime number is:

### Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option D

101 is a prime number.

Hence 101 is the smallest 3-digit prime number.
