To find out the number of ODD factors, consider that there must not be any 2 in the product because 2 will make everything even.

That means find out the number of factors of \(2^0*3^4*5^5\)

As per the formula, \(a^p*b^q*c^r\), we have number of factors = (p+1)(q+1)(r+1)

Therefore, for our question I can say, number of Odd factors = (0+1) ( 4+1)(5+1) = 5*6 = 30

Hence, answer must be B.
