\(\frac{35}{3} + \frac{35}{3^2} + \frac{35}{3^3} = 11+3+1 =15\)

Option A

Refer article by Bunuel to know the formula

35! is the product of all the number from 1 to 35.

Starting from 1 till 35,
there are 11 multiples of 3, 3 multiples of \(9(3^2)\) and only 1 multiple of \(27(3^3)\)

Therefore, m has a maximum value of \(11+3+1 = 15\)(Option A)
