Thanks guys

E is the right answer. Good explaination JPV. You made a silly mistake by thaing the n^4 instead of n^3.

Thanks guys

ex with the help of numbers...

lets take the two prime numbers as 2 and 3 ....


2^3 = 6 and this has 4 factors...

2^4 =16 more than four...

3^4 many factors...

3^3 = 27 has only four...

and 2*3 = 6 has four...

hope that helps ! Have fun :)
