The number of zeros will depend on the number of 10s in the product, or the number of (2*5)s.

12*18*15*40*25*16*55*105 can be broken up into number of 2s and 5s as

2^2, 2, 5, 2^3 * 5, 5^2, 2^4, 5, 5.

There are 10 2s and 6 5s. Hence, number of trailing zeros will be 6. (E)

Answer E.

Just look at the units digit of each product:
12*18 --> units digit = 6
6*15 --> units digit = 0
0*40 --> units digit = 0
0*25 --> units digit = 0
0*16 --> units digit = 0
0*55 --> units digit = 0
0*105 --> units digit = 0

Total number of 0's=6
