Solution

## The correct option is C 5 ladoos in each boxTo distribute the ladoos equally inside a box such that none are left out, the number of ladoos inside a box should be a factor of 26. Factors of 26: 1, 2, 13,26 1 x 26 = 26 2 x 13 = 26 13 x 2 = 26 26 x 1 = 26 We can clearly see that 5 is not a factor of 26. Hence, 5 ladoos cannot be distributed in box such that none are left out.
