I know that 140 divided by 7 = 20
140 - 7 = 133, so 133 divided by 7 = 19
So, 135 divided by 7 equals 19 with remainder 2

What about 135 divided by 19?
Well, we learned earlier that 133 divided by 7 = 19
This ALSO means that 133 divided by 19 = 7
So, 135 divided by 19 equals 7 with remainder 2

We get:
Quantity A: 2
Quantity B: 2

It would be possible to see a similar question (on the first quant section at least) on test day.


Cheers,

I am sorry, I am unable to understand the process of solving it.

Will it be wise to use calculator to solve this type of question in actual GRE.

yes, why not.

However, a question like this, using directly the calculator to solve it, is quite improbable.
