A divisibility rule is a shorthand way of determining whether a given integer is divisible by a fixed divisor without performing the division, usually by examining its digits. Let’s try an objective problem number 3 based on this rule from B. Stat Hons. Admission Test 2005.

Use some hints
All the numbers between 1 to 1000 that are divisible by 2 but not by 4 are the set of AP whose first term is 2 and common difference is 4.
And the list is
and thre are 250 terms. nd the sum of all these numbers is 125000.
Now we need to add all the numbers which are divisible by 5, an off cource they will not be divisible by 4.
But we have already added the even numbers. so we just need to add the odd numbers only.
The sum of all the odd numbesr will be
An now we just need to add to get the total sum.
