Two ways

1) combination..
Therefore, we have to add ways to pick 2 or 3 or all out of 4, so 4C2+4C3+4C4 = 6+4+1 = 11

2) there are two ways for each number - select or not select..
Therefore total ways is 2*2*2*2=16
Now this includes the 4 ways when each is taken alone, so subtract 4 from 16 = 16-4=12
It also includes the way when none is selected, so subtract 1..12-1=11

Notice the word two or more factors.

Selecting 2 primes out of given 4= 4C2 ways= 6
Selecting 3 primes out of given 4= 4C3 ways =4
Selecting 4 primes out of given 4= 4C4 ways= 1
So total ways = 6+4+1 = Eleven

total given prime no 5,7,11,13
no of different products which can be made using these 4 prime no and not including same prime factor >1 is
4c2+4c3+4c4
6+4+1 = 11
IMO D
