55=5*11.
We know in the no. 4ab5 last digit is 5 so its divisible by 5.
Its divisible by 11 also if its divisible by 11 then the sum of its odd and even terms must be divisible by
11. 
4+b-(a+5)=a no. Divisible by 11.
b-a=(a no. Divisible by 11 ) +1.
now since b and a are single digit no. so 0 is the only no. which satisfies the equation. So the answer is 1.
