### Steps/Work

This question asks what IS...(the answer), so we know that the answer will be definite. As such, we can TEST VALUES to quickly get the solution.

We're told that P and Q are POSITIVE INTEGERS and P = 10Q - 5. We're asked for the REMAINDER when P is divided by 5.

IF....

Q = 1

P = 5

5/5 = 1 remainder 0

Final Answer:

A
