=>
Since \(2 = 2^1, 4 = 2^2, 6 = 2^1*3, 8 = 2^3, 10=2^1*5\), the prime factorization of \(10! = 1*2*3*…*10\) has the form \(2^8*m\) for some integer \(m\), where \(m\) and \(2\) are relatively prime. Note that \(9! = 2^7*k\) for some integer \(k\), where \(k\) and \(2\) are relatively prime.

Therefore, the answer is B.

2^8= 16*16

so using given answer choices
10!/16*16 = integer value .. IMO B
