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.

(A) 700
(B) 2,800
(C) 4,000
(D) 7,000
(E) 28,000


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
