Out of 7 consonants and 4 vowels, how many words of 3 consonants and 2 vowels can be formed?
Selecting 3 consonants out of 7,
No. of ways = 7C3
Selecting 2 vowels out of 4,
No. of ways = 4C2
No. of ways of forming the words
= 7C3* 4C2* 5! (for arrangement of the letters)
= 35 * 6 * 120
Four visitors A, B, C & D arrive at a town which has 5 hotels. In how many ways can they disperse themselves among 5 hotels, if 4 hotels are used to accommodate them.
Number of visitors= 4
Number of hotels= 5
So, A can disperse among 5 hotels,
B can disperse among 4 hotels,
C can disperse among 3 hotels,
D can disperse among 2 hotels.
∴ They can disperse in the hotels in 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 = 120 ways
If the letters of the word "VARUN" are written in all possible ways and then are arranged as in a dictionary, then rank of the word VARUN is
Number of words beginning with A = 4! = 4 × 3 × 2 = 24
Number of words beginning with N = 4! = 4 × 3 × 2 = 24
Number of words beginning with R = 4! = 4 × 3 × 2 = 24
Number of words beginning with U = 4! = 4 × 3 × 2 = 24
So, in total 96 words will be formed while beginning with letter A, N, R and U.
Now, 97th word according to dictionary order will be VANRU
Now, 98th word according to dictionary order will be VANUR
Now, 99th word according to dictionary order will be VARNU
Finally, 100th word according to dictionary order will be VARUN.
Hence, option (c) is the correct answer.

A man has 3 jackets, 10 shirts, and 5 pairs of slacks. If an outfit consists of a jacket, a shirt, and a pair of slacks, how many different outfits can the man make ?
Total number of jackets=3
Total number of shirts=10
Total number of pair of slacks=5
Ways of selecting one jacket =3C1=3
Ways of selecting one shirt =10C1=10
Ways of selecting one pair of slack = 5C1=5
Number of different outfits that can be made=3×10×5=150
Number of different outfits that can be made=150
There are 6 roads between A & B and 4 roads between B & C.
(i) In how many ways can one drive from A to C by way of B?
(ii) In how many ways can one drive from A to C and back to A, passing through B on both trips?
(iii) In how many ways can one drive the circular trip described in (ii) without using the same road more than once.
i) It's 6*4 because there are 6 different roads to get to B, then after getting there, can take 4 different paths. So every one road to B has 4 different possible paths.
How many car number plates can be made if
i) each plate contains 2 different letters of English alphabet, followed by 3 different digits.
ii) the number plates have two letters of the english alphabet followed by two digits if the repetition of digits or alphabets is not allowed?
i) There are 5 places to fill
2 places of alphabet(out of 26) can be filled in =26∗25 ways
3 places of digits(out of 10) can be filled in = 10∗9∗8 ways
No of different plates = 26∗25∗10∗9∗8=468000
ii) We have total four place to cover with two alphabets and two digits.
For the first place:
Out of 26 alphabets we need one
∴ combinations for first place = 26C1 = 26
For the second place:
We are left with 25 alphabets now as no repetitions are allowed.
∴combinations for second place= 25C1 = 25
For the third place:
Out of 10 digits we need to select one
∴combinations for third place = 10C1 = 10
For the fourth place:
We are left with 9 digits now as no repetitions are allowed
∴combinations for fourth place= 9C1 = 9
∴Total Combinations of number plates = 26 * 25 * 10 * 9 = 58,500

In a telephone system four different letter P, R, S, T and the four digits 3, 5, 7, 8 are used.Find the maximum number of “telephone numbers” the system can have if each consistsof a letter followed by a four-digit number in which the digit may be repeated.
How many of the arrangements of the letter of the word "LOGARITHM" begin with a vowel and end with a consonant ?
Number of natural numbers between 100 and 1000 such that at least one of their digits is 7, is
A 3-digit no.: _ _ _
Possible digits: 0, 1 ,2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
In the first place there are 9 possible digits (0 cannot be the 1st digit)
In the second and third place there are 10 possible digits.
Total no. of 3-digit numbers = 9 *10 *10 = 900
For 3-digit no. without digit 7,
Possible digits: 0, 1 ,2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9
In the first place there are 8 possible digits (0 cannot be the 1st digit)
In the second and third place there are 9 possible digits.
Total no. of 3-digit numbers = 8 *9 *9 = 648
No. of 3-digit numbers with at least one digit 7 = 900 – 648 = 252
How many four digit numbers are there which are divisible by 2.
In a telephone system four different letter P, R, S, T and the four digits 3, 5, 7, 8 are used. Find the maximum number of "telephone numbers" the system can have if each consists of a letter followed by a four-digit number in which the digit may be repeated.
Find the number of 5 lettered palindromes which can be formed using the letters from the English alphabets.

Numbers of words which can be formed using all the letters of the word "AKSHI", if each word begins with vowel or terminates in vowel.
Consider the words starting with A.
Number of ways of filling the 2nd place is 4
Number of ways of filling the 3rd place is 3
Number of ways of filling the 4th place is 2
Number of ways of filling the 5th place is 1
Hence in total 4×3×2×1=24
Similar cases for the words starting with I.=24
Hence 2×24 =48
Consider the words ending with A−−−−A
Number of ways of filling the 1st place is 4
Number of ways of filling the 2nd place is 3
Number of ways of filling the 3rd place is 2
Number of ways of filling the 4th place is 1
Hence in total 24 ways.
Similarly for I- 24 ways.
Hence total number of words 4×24=96
But this includes the words which start and end with Vowels.
Number of such words is 3!.
Number of such words is 3!.
Hence total number of words beginning with or ending with Vowels is

How many 10 digit numbers can be made with odd digits so that no two consecutive digits are same.
The odd digits which can be considered are (1,3,5,7 and 9).
If we start from left, the first digit can be any number out of the five digits. The second place can be filled with any four digits except the digit at the first place.
Similarly, four ways for the third digit until we reach the tenth place.
Therefore, the total numbers formed are 5 × 49

In how many ways can 5 girls be seated in a row of 5 seats?
There can 5 girls selected for the first seat.
Then, there are 4 girls to select from for the second seat.
Then, there are 3 girls to select from for the third seat.
Then, there are just 2 girls to select from for the fourth seat.
Then, there is just 1 girl for the fifth and final seat.
Therefore they number of ways to seat 5 girls in 5 seats is:
So there are 120 different ways to seat 5 girls in 5 chairs.
How many of the 900 three digit numbers have at least one even digit ?
Total 3 digit numbers = 900
There are only 5 odd numbers (1,3,5,7,9)
