10^1 = 10...1 digit

10^2 = 100 .. 3 digits

10^3 = 1000 ... 4digits

10^4 = 10,000 ... 5digits

10^4 - 10^2 = 10,000 - 100 = 9900 .. which is nearar to 10^4 or 10^2 (10^2-1)= 100(100-1) = 9900, which ever way you find comfortable but it will be nearar to 10^4

apply same thing here
10^30(10^150-1) will be nearar to 10^180..

10^180 – 10^30 = 10^30(10^150 - 1) APPROX = 10^30(10^150) = 10^180

b

10^180 – 10^30 nearly = 10^180 hence IMO B
