n^3 = 450y
n^3 = 2x3x3x5x5 y

if n and y are +ve integers, y must, at least be, 2x2x3x5.

hmmm.... ok, it is only I.

450=9*50=3*3*2*5*5=3^2*5^2*2. 3rd root of y must be integer, so y must be a number that is composed of 3^(n-2)^2^(n-1)^5^(n-1), where n is multiple of 3. from the choices 1 only satisfies this. So the answer is A.
