Solution

The correct option is A 6
Total number of candies =20
Number of friends=3
Number of candies each of his friends got = Total number of candies ÷ number of friends
=20÷3
Let's divide 20 by 3.Where, quotient =6
remainder =2
Hence, 20÷3=6R2
Remainder is 2 so, the number of candies left with William =2
