Explanation

m = 10^(32) + 2 = 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,002 so we certainly don't want to CALCULATE the remainder when m is divided by 11.
Instead, let's examine different powers of 10 and look for a pattern

1) 10^1 + 2 = 12. When we divide 12 by 11, we get remainder 1
2) 10^2 + 2 = 102. When we divide 102 by 11, we get remainder 3
3) 10^3 + 2 = 1002. When we divide 1002 by 11, we get remainder 1
4) 10^4 + 2 = 10,002. When we divide 10,002 by 11, we get remainder 3

So, when the exponent is ODD, the remainder is 1
And, when the exponent is EVEN, the remainder is 3

So, when we divide 10^32 +2 by 11, we get remainder 3

So, we have:
Quantity A: 3
Quantity B: 3

Cheers,
Brent
