Answer : D
For the value of xy to be maximum, we need to consider maximum value of x and y.
For X, that will be 99 (2 digit integer). For Y, that will be 69 (<70). The value of xy will be 69*99 = (70-1)(100-1) - So less than 7000.
Of all the options available, D satisfies the condition and thus the answer.

To get the maximum possible value of xy, we need maximize the value of both x and y
max x can be = 99 (given x is a two-digit integer > 40)
max y can be = 69 (given y is a two-digit integer < 70)
xy = 99*69 = 7000 (approx.)

for xy to be maximum, x and y must each have the largest possible value.
We know that x > 40 and y < 70.
Greatest possible 2 digit integer such that it is greater than 40 is 99, hence x = 99
Greatest possible 2 digit integer such that it is less than 70 is 69, hence x = 69
Therefore the maximum possible value of xy = 99*69 = 6831 which is closest to option D
