The root of each answer choice is less than 10, so we're looking for an answer choice which has distinct prime factors that multiply to something less than 10. But the only two distinct primes that multiply to something less than 10 are 2 and 3, so we want the answer that is only divisible by 2 and 3, and the answer must be 96.
