Answer: (2) 6
Explanation:- 
Prime factorization of 59535 = 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 7 x 7
= 32 x 32 x 3  x 5  x 72
Thus, we get the number is 3 x 5 = 15 which is not make a perfect square.
If we multiply 59535 by 15 then, the number will make perfect square.
The sum of digits of 15 = 1 + 5 = 6

Hence, the answer is (2) 6.
