If any number ends with the digit 0, it should be divisible by 10 or in other words, it will also be divisible by 2 and 5 as 10 = 2 × 5  
It can be observed that 2 is not in the prime factorisation of 5n 
Hence, for any value of n, 5n will not be divisible by 2.  
Therefore, 5n cannot end with the digit 0 for any natural number n.
