All the cubic residues \(\pmod 9\) are \(0,1,8\), but \(n!+5\equiv 5\pmod {9}, \forall n\ge 6\), hence \(n\le 5\). After checking all the possible cases, only \(n=5\) works (\(5!+5=125=5^3\)), hence the answer is \(\boxed{(\text{B})\text{ }1}\). BTW, why did you post this as a note instead of a problem for points?

I got the answer as 1, but was not sure whether it was right. I can't make a problem with the wrong solution.
