given that 990a = n! (whr a is multiple of 990)

now 990 = 3*3*2*5*11.......hence max value is 11..OA D

See, here the factors of 990 = 3*3*2*5*11...

Now this divides n..... so we need to have all these factores ie. 2,3,5,11 ..then only it will divide..in n...

in n! .. the max should have 11 ....

Hope its clear now

I am not too sure i got this one..
990=11 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 2..ok..
So since we want the MINIMUM value of n we didide this by the MAXIMUM prime factor which is 11?
Am i understanding it correctly??
