If $N$ be the greatest number that will divide $a,b\;\text{and}\; c,$ leaving the same remainder in each case.

Then $N = \text{HCF of}\;[(\mid a – b \mid), (\mid b– c \mid), (\mid c– a \mid)]$

Now, $N = \text{HCF of}\;[(\mid 1305 – 4665 \mid),\;(\mid 4665 – 6905 \mid),\;(\mid 6905 – 1305\mid)$

$\implies N = \text{HCF of}\;(3360,2040,5600)$

$\implies N = 1120$

$\therefore$ The sum of the digits in $N$ is $ = 1 + 1 + 2 + 0 = 4.$

So, the correct answer is $(A).$
