A 5 B 10 C 15 D 20 E 25 total no in A = 5 which is multiplied once by 5 different no in B which are also 5 1*5 * 5 = 25 IMO E

I know :D My answer would have been 22, since you can keep 12,20 and 30. But since this is not an option, I've got a problem here :D

So the answer would be 22. But since neither 19 nor 22 is an answer choice here, I might just think to complicated and the correct answer is in fact [E)
