Hint: We initiate the problem by taking a 4-digit largest number and now let us take the largest 4 digit number and divide it with 88.

Complete step-by-step answer:
We know that the largest four digit number = 9999
Divide 9999 by 88 = $9999 \div 88$
We get Quotient = 113, Remainder = 55
This means 9999 is 55 more than the number which is divisible by 88. So,here we have to subtract 55 from 9999 for getting the number.
Now subtract the 9999 and remainder from the division.
$ \Rightarrow 9999 - 55 = 9944$
$\therefore $ The largest 4 digit number exactly divisible by 88 is 9944
Hence option A is correct from the given options.

Note: In such types of problems follow the divisibility rules or if it is a largest number divide with the given divisor and subtract with the remainder we can find the result.
