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 $$10^{8}$$

ANS C
