The question asked for the smallest possible value and the answers are all negative values, we are looking for either
(1) N, N, N, P or
(2) N, P, P, P

where N = negative value and P = positive value.

(1) product of {-5, -4, -3, 10} = -600 or
(2) product of {-5, 8, 9, 10} = -3600

Ans: B.

-ve value will be lowest, take the least number i.e. -5
and greteast 3 numbers i.e. 8,9,10 (gives highest product).
