    10-7=3 therefore 10^25-7 is divisible by 3.

    its not last digit but all preceeding digits are 9. therefore sum of 23 9s+3 is a multiple of 3.

    if u have 10 or 10^2 meaning 100 or 10^x it doesn't matter cause by substracting 7 u will have the last digit 3 and 3 is divisible only with 3

    anyways,alternately, we know, 10^n = 3q + 1 and 7 = 3p + 1 subtracting both, 10^n - 7 = 3(q-p) = 3r ==> divisible by 3
