\(550=275*2=25*11*2=5*5*11*2=5^2*11*2\)

Different prime numbers are 5, 11 and 2.

Sum=5+11+2=18

Ans: "E"

To determine the sum of the different positive prime factors of 550, let’s break 550 into its prime factorization.

550 = 55 x 10 = 5 x 11 x 5 x 2

The different prime factors of 550 are 5, 11, and 2 and the sum of these prime factors is 5 + 11 + 2 = 18.

Answer: E
