Cyclicity of 2,3, and 7 is 4
Cyclicity of 13: 3-9-7-1-3-9-7-1-3

So, unit's digit in the numerical value of \((2)^{37} * (3)^{47} * (7)^{79} * (13)^{26}\)=2*7*3*9=378

Ans. (D)

\((2)^{37} = (2)^{4*9+1}\) = Units Digit \(2\) ; As \(2^4 = 6\) and \(2^1 = 2\)

\((3)^{47} = (3)^{4*11+3}\) = Units Digit \(7\) ; As \(3^4 = 1\) and \(3^3 = 7\)

\((7)^{79} = (7)^{4*19 + 3}\) = Units Digit \(3\) ; As \(7^4 = 1\) and \(7^3 = 3\)

(13)^{26} = (13)^{4*6 +2 } = Units Digit \(9\) ; As \(3^4 = 1\) and \(3^2 = 9\)

Thus, the units digit is \(2*7*3*9 = xx8\), Answer must be (D)
