expression can be written as :

44*44* sqrt 11 * 2/ 11 sqrt 11

solve we would get 352 IMO D

Simplifying the numerator of the given expression:-

$$44^{\frac{5}{2}}$$=$$(11*4)^{\frac{5}{2}}$$=$$11^{\frac{5}{2}}*4^{\frac{5}{2}}$$

Simplifying the denominator of the given expression:-
$${\sqrt{11^3}}$$=$$11^{\frac{3}{2}}$$

Now, $$\frac{numerator}{denominator}=11^{\frac{5}{2}-\frac{3}{2}}*4^{\frac{5}{2}}$$=$$11*2^5$$=352

Ans. (D)

Properties of exponents used:-
1) $$\frac{a^m}{a^n}=a^{m-n}$$
2) $$(a^m)^n=a^{m*n}$$
3) $$(a*b)^m=a^m*b^m$$
4) $$\sqrt{a^m}=a^{\frac{m}{2}}$$
