(5) None of these

Ans : (3)

Explanation : By the rule 2 + 3 = 10
6 + 5 = 66
7 + 2 = 63
We see that two numbers are added first and then multiplied by first number. For, example see 7 + 2 = 9 then 9 * 7 = 63
? Here 8 + 4 = 12
then 8 * 12 = 96.

5 * 4 ? 202 ? 400
3 * 3 ? 92 ? 81
? 5 * 5 ? (25)2 ? 625
