A)
Toolbox:
  • $(a+b)^n=nC_0x^n a^0+nC_1x^{n-1} a^1+.......nC_n x^0a^n$
We have $7^9+9^7=-(1-8)^9+(1+8)^7$
$\Rightarrow -(1-9C_1.8^1+9C_2.8^2-......-9C_9.8^9)+(1+7C_1.8^1+7C_2.8^2+....+7C_7 .8^7)$
$\Rightarrow 16\times 8+64[-(9C_2-........-9C_9.8^7)(7C_2+.....+7C_7.8^5)]$
$\Rightarrow 64$ (an integer)
Hence the given statement is True.
