Nitya34,

Still didn't get the solution. Looks like my quant skill is getting little blunt.

Can any one give a better explanation.

let me try

do prime factorization and 88000 becomes (2^6)(5^3)(11)

now we have to match with (1)(5)(x)(11)

also x could only be 6,7,8,9,10

what you getting?

2^6 is matching with x(purple)

and 2^6 is 64 which is Same as 8^2

no other combinaton possible,IMO

hence OA is
