Question (i)
If the division N ÷ 2 leaves a remainder of 1, what might be the ones digit of N? (N is odd; so its ones digit is odd. Therefore, the ones digit must be 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9.)
Solution:
N is odd, so its ones digit is odd. Therefore, the ones digit must be 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9.
(Given in textbook, but let us make it simple by solving numerically.)

Question (ii)
If the division N ÷ 2 leaves no remainder (i.e., zero remainder), what might be the one’s digit of N?
Solution:
Here, the remainder = 0. So N is an even number, i.e., its ones digit is even. Therefore, the one’s digit must be 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8.

Question (iii)
Suppose that the division N ÷ 5 leaves a remainder of 4 and the division N ÷ 2 leaves a remainder of 1. What must be the ones digit of N?
Solution:
Here, the remainder is 4. So ones digit of N should be 4 or 9. Again, N ÷ 2 leaves a remainder 1.
So ones digit of N is odd, i.e., ones digit is one of these 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9.
∴ 9 is a common ones digit in both the cases.
Therefore, ones digit of N must be 9.
