I go with B = 9.

Reasoning is...

for max length take smallest prime allowed (2) and keep multiplying till you reach 1000

2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2 = 2^9 = 512
2^10 = 1024

So max length is 9

(This is the first question I could answer before anyone else...small joys)

I agree with kyatin's solution. I would request terp26 to also share with us the problems/doubts/issues faced when actually solving this problem. And also if kyatin's solution was helpful.
