Solution

The correct options are
A

3


D

12


Let the number be ab.

Here we have 'a' in tens place and 'b' in units place. So we can write the number as 10a + b. If we reverse it we get 10b+a.

(10a + b) – (10b + a) = 10a + b – 10b – a

                                  = 9a – 9b = 9(a – b).

Hence the number is divisible by 9.
Additionally the resulting number will also be divisible by factors of 9 which is 1 and 3 in this case. 
Hence the number obtained will be divisble by 3 and 9.
