Problem

Given a geometric progression of five terms, each a positive integer less than $100$. The sum of the five terms is $211$. If $S$ is the sum of those terms in the progression which are squares of integers, then $S$ is:

$\textbf{(A)}\ 0\qquad \textbf{(B)}\ 91\qquad \textbf{(C)}\ 133\qquad \textbf{(D)}\ 195\qquad \textbf{(E)}\ 211$
