I was writing a long good answer but the page got updated. The above are all the divisors of 7 that you need. If you start counting from 1064 every 11th 7 divisible will be the one that is required. Pay attention to that pattern since it will give you a simpler way to solve the question.

 

1988-1008 = 980

980/7 = 140 

140 - 8 = 132

so it will start from 1st number required meaning +1

132/11 = 12

 

Answer: 12+1
