9. If % x ^ = 20 ; ^ x & = 32 ; % x & = 40 ; * x & = 72. Then what is the value of * ?
Answer: c. 9
* cannot be 7 as 72 is not divisible by 7.
If * is 6, then & becomes 72/6 = 12.
But 40 is not divisible by 12.
Let * be 8, then & becomes 72/8 = 9
But 40 and 32 are not divisible by 9.
So * is 9. Answer is option c.
