(A) Four
(B) Six
(C) Eight
(D) Ten
(E) More than ten


Given, 'x' is a number. (NOT integer)
And 0 < x ≤ 20.

\(\frac{20}{x}\) is an integer:-
a) Prime factorization of 20, 20=\(2^2*5^1\), (2+1)*(1+1)=6 factors of 20 . So, 6 values of x.
b) When \(x=\frac{1}{2}\), \(\frac{20}{x}\)=40. Similarly, we can choose, x=1/3,1/4,1/5,1/6,1/7,1/8,1/9 etc.

So, the no of values of x is more than 10.

Ans. (E)
