The answer is E.

Consider e. g. 2*2*3*5*7 = 420.

It's divisible by 4, and it's divisible by exactly
4 different prime numbers (2,3,5,7).

The square root is 2*sqrt(105), which ISN'T an integer.

==

Consider e. g. 4*(2*3*5*7)^2 = 176400.

It's divisible by 4, and it's divisible by exactly
4 different prime numbers (2,3,5,7).

The square root is 420, which IS an integer.

So E.

Agree with ccax, but do you a quick solution for this one

Consider e. g. 4*(2*3*5*7)^2 = 176400.

It's divisible by 4, and it's divisible by exactly
4 different prime numbers (2,3,5,7).

The square root is 420, which IS an integer.
?

As on the real test you will spend a lot of time trying to pick up different digits.
