Took a while to get there - but got it right. Happy 7DC to all

Smart way to ask a question

There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand (the world). There is no such thing as a dumb question. ― Carl Sagan

Thank You, nice one.

Took a while, but it was easy. 2011%16 > 1, there was just one answer.

Now I wait three weeks for the beginning of the year of dragon.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Fun, but maybe a bit too easy, as 2000 is 125*16 it's obvious that the base 16 string for 2011 ends in B and only one of the four options ended in B.

Probably most of us are used to hex (and octal and binary) notations - it would have been a bit more challenging to try a different base (say base 9 or base 11).

I had an unfair advantage on this one: I was 16 years a system programmer on IBM /360. Converting a hex number into decimal brought some fond memories. (I was young and I thought I knew it all.)
