30. Factors are 1,2,3,5,6,10,15,30 = 8 unique factors
31. Factors are 1, 31 = 2 unique factors
32. Factors are 1,2,4,8,16,32 = 6 unique factors
33. Factors are 1,3,11,33 = 4 unique factors
34. Factors are 1,2,17,34 = 4 unique factors

Hence option A = 30 is the answer.

Solution

To find:
• From the numbers given in the options, which number has the greatest number of unique factors

Approach and Working:
We can express each of the numbers in terms of its prime factors and then figure out the number of factors for each of them
• 30 = $$2^1 * 3^1 * 5^1$$
o Number of factors = (1 + 1) * (1 + 1) * (1 + 1) = 8
• 31 = $$31^1$$
o Number of factors = 1 + 1 = 2
• 32 = $$2^5$$
o Number of factors = 5 + 1 = 6
• 33 = $$3^1 * 11^1$$
o Number of factors = (1 + 1) * (1 + 1) = 4
• 34 = $$2^1 * 17^1$$
o Number of factors = (1 + 1) * (1 + 1) = 4

We can see the number 30 has greatest number of factors
Hence, the correct answer is option A.
