detailed solution

Correct option is D

First and second prizes in Maths and Physics can be awarded in

${}^{30}{P}_{2}{.}^{30}{P}_{2}={\left({}^{30}{P}_{2}\right)}^{2}$  ways

First prize is Chemistry, Biology can be awarded in $=30.30={\left(30\right)}^{2}$  ways

$\therefore$  $N={\left({}^{30}{P}_{2}\right)}^{2}.{\left(30\right)}^{2}={30}^{4}{.29}^{2}={2}^{4}{.3}^{4}{.5}^{4}{.29}^{2}$

As $400={2}^{4}{.5}^{2},\text{\hspace{0.17em}}600={2}^{3}{.3.5}^{2},\text{\hspace{0.17em}}8100={2}^{2}{.3}^{4}{.5}^{2},$

We get N is divisible by each of $400,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}600,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}8100$

and also N is divisible by 4 primes 2, 3, 5, 29
