Solution

## The correct option is B 132"The number is divisible by 12, if it is divisible by 3 and 4" Divisibility by 3: The number is divisible by 3, if sum of its digits is divisible by 3 Divisibility by 4: The number is divisible by 4, if the last two digit is divisible by 4 Divisibility test 12 on 46: 46 = 4 + 6 = 10, the sum of the digits of 46 is 10 which is not divisible by 3, so the number 46 is not divisible by 3 46 is not divisible by 4 46 is not divisible by 3 and 4 both, so the number is not divisibe by 12 Divisibility test 12 on 132: 132 = 1 + 3 + 2 = 6, the sum of the digits of 132 is 6 which is divisible by 3, so the number 132 is divisible by 3 132 is divisible by 4, because the last two digit 32 is divisible by 4 Because 132 is divisible by 3 and 4, the number is divisibe by 12 Divisibility test 12 on 56: 56 = 5 + 6 = 11, the sum of the digits of 56 is 11 which is not divisible by 3, so the number 56 is not divisible by 3 56 is divisible by 4 Although 56 is divisible by 4, it is not divisible by 3, so the number is not divisibe by 12 Divisibility test 12 on 315: 315 = 3 + 1 + 5 = 9, the sum of the digits of 315 is 9 which is divisible by 3, so the number 315 is divisible by 3 315 is not divisible by 4, beacuse the last two digits of 315 is not divisible by 4 Although 315 is divisible by 3, it is not divisible by 4, so the number is not divisibe by 12  Suggest Corrections  0      Similar questions  Related Videos   Divisibility by 12
