Detailed Solution for Test: Single Correct MCQs: Permutations and Combinations | JEE Advanced - Question 5

KEY CONCEPT : We know that a number is divisible by 3 if the sum of its digits is divisibly by 3.
Now out of  0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 if we take 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 0, 1, 2, 4, 5 then the 5digit numbers will be divisible by 3.
Case I : Number of 5 digit numbers formed using the
digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 = 5! = 120
Case II : Taking 0, 1, 2, 4, 5 if we make 5 digit number then
I place can be filled in = 4 ways (0 can not come at I place)
II place can be filled in = 4 ways
III place can be filled in = 3 ways
IV place can be filled in = 2 ways
V place can be filled in = 1 ways
