There are 462 subsets containing exactly 5 distinct elements of the set of letters {b,e,n,c,h,m,a,r,k,i,n,g}. Each of these subsets forms a unique chain of letters in which the letters are written in alphabetical order. If these 5-letter chains are written in alphabetical order, what is the last letter of the chain that occupies the 50th position?
