I. (4!)×(4!)×(3!)×(11)×(17)×(31)

III. (2!)^5×(3!)^5×(4!)^5

10 = 5*2
Hence to have a 0, we need to have atleast one power of 5 in the multiplication.

I. (4!)×(4!)×(3!)×(11)×(17)×(31)
This does not have a power of 5. Hence no 0

II. (2!)×(3!)×(3!)×(5)×(17)×(31)
This will have a 0 as there is one power of 5

III. (2!)^5×(3!)^5×(4!)^5
This will again not have a 0 as there are no powers of 5

Correct Option: B

For a UD to be 10 we need a two and a five in the multiplication.Only B has it.

At a glance solution

0 in the units place will come only when you have at least a multiple of 2 and 5

Check clearly none of the given option is both a multiple of 2 and 5 except option (II)

Hence (B) is the correct answer.

oh what a trap here...
I noticed that II must have 0 in units digit. A, C are out right away.
I - doesn't have a factor of 5, therefore, no where to make zero in units digit. D is out
III - again no 5...E is out too...
