(A) 2*10^4

(C) 2*10^8
(D) 2*10^9
(E) 2*10^10


solved it by guessing for prime no <20 product is ~>10^7 so for <29 it would be ~ 10^8
IMO C

Prime numbers less than 29 are
2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23

2 x 5 = 10
3 x 7 = \(21\approx{20}\)= 2 x 10
11 x \(19\approx{10}\) x 20 = 2 x 100
13 x 17 = \(221\approx{200}\) = 2 x 100
\(23\approx{20}\) = 2 x 10

So Approx value of Product of all prime numbers less than 29
=10 x (2 x 10) x (2 x 100) x (2 x 100) x (2 x 10)
= 2 x 8 x \(10^{7}\)
\(\approx{2}\) x 10 x \(10^{7}\)
=2 x \(10^{8}\)
