A)one
B)two
C)three
D)Four
E)cannot be determined


Let the factor be a^x*b^y.....
So (x+1)(y+1).....=211..
Now 211 is a prime number...
So only one variable x or y is 210 and the others are 0..
(210+1)(0+1)...
So the number becomes a^210..
Thus only ONE prime factor is there..

A

Notice here that 211 is a prime number as it is not divisile by any prime factor less than or equal to the square root of 211.
Therefore the number n can only be of the form => Prime^210
Hence it will always have one prime factor.

If the number of factors of any integer is a prime number => The integer will always have a single prime factor.
Hence A.
