how do you have a remainder of 0?

Good question! We might say that 6 divided by 2 equals 3 with no remainder. However, if we want to assign a numeric value to the remainder, we'd have to say the remainder is zero.

Likewise, if you went to the grocery and didn't buy any apples, then (if we were trying to quantify your various purchases), we could also say that you purchased zero apples.

I like your answer :)

thank you!

You're welcome!

Is this assumption correct: For a 'Yes/No' Data Sufficiency question, there is no or very little need for any calculation?

Sometimes that's the case, sometimes it's not the case.
