COMBIN-EY9GSN

Let:

$$P_n=\prod_{k=0}^n {n\choose k}$$

...denote the product of all elements in row $n$ of Pascal's Triangle. What is the value of the limit as $n$ goes to $\infty$ of the fraction:

$$\frac{P_{n+1}P_{n-1}}{\left(P_n\right)^2}?$$

A

$\sqrt{2\pi}$

B

$2\sqrt{\pi }$

C

$e$

D

$\sqrt{2}\,e$

E

$\sqrt{\pi}\,e$

F

none of the above
