$$h(100)+2=2*4*6*...*100+2$$. Notice that we can factor out 2 from h(100)+2, thus the smallest prime factor of h(100)+2 is 2: $$h(100)+2=2*(4*6*...*100+1)$$.

Hope it helps.

h(100) will have 0 in its unit digit because while doing the calculation of the function we are multiplying by 10 (and 100). So h(100)+2 will have 2 in the units digit so smallest prime factor is 2.

The answer will be even and thus the SMALLEST prime factor would be 2 (even).
