Answer: (2) 5
Explanation:-
Let the number be X.
A Number divided by 56 gives 29 as a remainder.
Then, X/56 + 29
If the same number is divided by 8,
Then, X/56 is divisible by 8
and remainder 29 is divide by 8 then, the remainder is 8 x 3 + 5
Hence, the same number is divided by 8 , then, the leaving remainder is 5.
