The answer should be 3 as 8Q^8 will also have 2 as a factor since Q is odd. And since it's a perfect square, it's square root will have the same number of factors.

Given Data
Q is a perfect square, and odd.
Also, given \(8Q^8\) has 4 prime factors(of which 2 is a prime factor)

The expression \(8Q^8\) has 3 more prime factors with the exception of 2.
Hence, √Q will also have 3 prime factors, since Q is a perfect square. (Option C)

We are given that Q is a perfect square of an odd positive integer. We know that the number of distinct prime factors of a number is the same as that number raised to any positive integer power. Since 8Q^8 has four distinct prime factors and 8 has one distinct prime factor (2), Q^8, or Q, must have three distinct prime factors. Since Q is a perfect square, √Q is also a positive integer. Lastly, since Q has three distinct prime factors, √Q has three distinct prime factors.

Answer: C

Given Q is a perfect square of an odd positive integer.

Given \(8Q^8\) has four prime factors.

8 has one prime factor, ie; 2.

Hence the other 3 prime factors must be from \(Q^8\).

Therefore \(\sqrt{Q}\) will also have 3 prime factors as its a perfect square.

Answer (C)...
