The initial two digits are same for all. The last three are different. So 225 is a perfect square.
Hence A.

\(5\) is a prime number which will divide the answer option
A perfect square will have to be have a power of 2 for every prime factor,
so \(5^2(25)\) divides this number.

Of the options available, Only Option A(55225) is a number which 25 divides!

Last digit of options are ending in \(5\). Hence all numbers are divisible by \(5\)

Square of \(5\) ends in \(25\)

Only option is \(55,225\)

Answer (A)...
