A. 165
B. 192
C. 228
D. 330
E. 332


We can express each answer choice as a product of its prime factors:

A) 165

165 = 5 x 33 = 5 x 11 x 3

165 has 3 distinct prime factors.

B) 192

192 = 8 x 24 = 8 x 8 x 3 = 2^6 x 3^1

192 has 2 distinct prime factors.

C) 228

228 = 4 x 57 = 2^2 x 57

228 has 2 distinct prime factors.

D) 330

330 = 10 x 33 = 2 x 3 x 5 x 11

330 has 4 distinct prime factors.

E) 332

332 = 4 x 83 = 2^2 x 83

332 has 2 distinct prime factors.

330 has the greatest number of distinct prime factors.

Answer: D

Yes, you should do prime factorization to get the answer.


Bunuel mean there is no way out except applying factroization on every question it is taking time it took my 2 minutes :(
