Let N = $$2^33^55^27^4$$
Total factors of N = $$(3 + 1)*(5 + 1)*(2 + 1)*(4 + 1) = 4*6*3*5$$

Odd factors of N is same as total factors of $$3^55^27^4$$ = $$(5 + 1)*(2 + 1)*(4 + 1) = 6*3*5$$

Probability of Odd factors = $$\frac{6*3*5}{4*6*3*5} = \frac{1}{4}$$

IMO Option B

Total Factors: 4*6*3*5=360
Dismiss prime two from the set to get only odd factors: 6*3*5=90

So the prob to pick only odd is $$\frac{90}{360}=\frac{1}{4}$$

From 2^3 * 3^5 * 5^2 * 7^4
Total factor = 3+5+2+4 (sum of every exponent) = 14
Odd factor = 5+2+4 (sum of odd exponent) = 11
So, prob. of odd factor = 11/14
