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. Re: 2ab5 is a four-digit number divisible by 25. If the number f   [#permalink] 17 Jul 2018, 12:26
