k could be 5 or 11 or 17 or 23 [5+(6n) because there are 23 5's in the product of integers between 99 and 199.

E make sense..

Agree that answer is E.

Prof, how did you calculate 23 5's in the product of integers?

1) 200/5 - 100/5 = 20
2) 200/25 - 100/25 = 4
3) 200/125 - 100/125 = 1

sorry about hasty generalization. actually there are 25 (not 23) 5's.
