Since it is given that ab is divisible by \(13\) we should first check ans choices to eliminate options that are not divisible by \(13\):

option a: \(10\) is below \(13\)so it is not divisible by \(13\)
option b: \(25\) is one less than \(26\) so it is also not divisible by \(13\)
option c: \(52\) is divisible by \(13\) so let us see if the total number replaced by \(52\) for the position ab is divisible by \(25\)
\(\frac{2525}{25}= 101\)
option C

Note :

ab is a multiple of 13. So, we can eliminate Option A, B, and E.

Option C:

2525 / 25.........clearly divisible. So, ab must be 52.

The best answer is C.
