n is the number of years the amount is invested... so what will that be in this case?

Yes, it's 20 years. Sometimes it helps to draw a little line with the years on it, and plot in where things are happening so you can see where it all is. That includes (c). I agree with CRG about that whole life expectancy thing. That was the assumption I was referring to that you have to make. What you really need is how many years you'll live after you retire.
