How do you solve this one quickly?

For every positive even integer n, the function h(n) is defined to be the product of all the even integers from 2 to n inclusive. If p is the smallest prime factor of h(100) + 1, then p is
a. between 2 and 10
b. b/n 10 and 20
c. b/n 20 and 30
d. b/n 30 and 40
e. greater than 40

thanks!

This problem was posted several times not long ago...you may search for it. Btw, it's E.

h(100)+1 = (2.4.6...100)+1 = 2(1.2.3...50)+1
All prime factors less than 50 will yield a remainder of 1. So nothing less than 50 is a factor of this. Hence E.

Hey laxie, is that you in the picture?
How were you able to upload something from outside this site? I keep getting errors when I try to do it

Cool, Laxie! I'am too tired now. Eyes are begging me to turn away from the monitor - been staring at this for 12 hours straight!
See you tomorrow with my new Avtar and will collect my chocolates/candies!
