ur question may b incorrect.bcoz the value of p(n,r) depends on n.

BUT,if u r sure tht ur queston is correct,i can say that the answer is A.

this is b'coz find the minimum possible value of 'r' for which the value of
p(n,r)<1000.

consider 1.
then p(999,1)=999<1000

of the given numbers in the list 1 is the minimum hence we can end up with A.
will b waiting 4 ur OA and OE
