100!=1*2*3*...*100, so 100! has all prime factors which are less than 100 and only them. It happens to be that there are 25 primes less than 100: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89 and 97.

Answer: B.

I really doubt that this is a realistic GMAT question: either you should remember the fact that there are 25 primes less than 100 or you should jut use brute force to count them.

you're right B. i was going through the topic " finding the Number of powers of a prime number P in the n!" in Number Theory article and thought that we could find Number of prime factors in any factorial given through the formula n/p + n/p^2 ........till p^x < n

Brunel, can we do this for every number?

for example, can we say that 55! would have as many prime number as the count of total prime numbers between 1 and 55?

Sure. 55!=1*2*3*...*55.

Now, as prime number cannot be written as a product of two factors, both of which are greater than 1 then prime more than 55 can not be a factor of 55! (prime more than 55, for example 71, just no way can occur in 55!).
