A)
5040

B)
840

C)
420

D)
1680

The word "SUCCESS" has total 7 elements, there two repeated elements S(thrice) and C(twice). The formula for permutations with repeated elements is as follows, When k out of n elements are indistinguishable, e.g. k copies of the same book, the number of different permutations is n!/k!.

Therefore the total number of arrangement of the word SUCCESS can be formed is 7!/3! *2!
=> (7*6*5*4*3*2*1)/(3*2*1)*(2*1) => 7*6*5*2 => 420

In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘ARCHIVE’ be arranged?

In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘PUBLIC’ be arranged so that the vowels are at the two ends?


शब्‍द ‘PUBLIC’ के अक्षरों को कितने भिन्‍न तरीको से पनुव्‍यर्वस्थित किया जा सकता है, ताकि स्‍वर दोनो छोरों पर रहें ।

A)
48

B)
72

C)
36

D)
None of these


Correct Answer :

48


Explanation :

PUBLIC has 2 vowels(UI) and 4 consonants (PBLC). All the letters are distinct.
First letter can be any of the two vowels (2 ways) and Last letter is the remaining vowel (1 way)
4 consonants can be arranged in 4! ways

Total number of ways = 2!*1!*4! = (2*1)*1*(4*3*2*1)=48

If 56Pr + 6 : 54Pr + 3 = 30800 : 1 then the value of r is ?

A) 40
B) 41
C) 42
D) 43

Correct Answer : 41
Explanation :

56Pr + 6 : 54Pr + 3 = 30800 : 1
⇒ 56! / (56 -(r + 6))! : 54! / (54 - (r + 3))! = 30800 : 1
⇒ 56! / (50 - r)! : 54! / (51 - r)! = 30800 : 1

As 56! = 56*55*54!
and also (51 - r)! =(51 - r)*[(51 - r) -1]! ⇒ (51 - r)*(50 - r)!

So,
⇒ 56*55*54! / (50 - r)! = (30800 x 54!) / (51 - r)*(50 - r)!
⇒ 56*55 = 30800/(51 - r)
⇒ 51 - r = 10
Hence, r = 41

How many groups of 6 persons can be formed from 8 men and 7 women ?

A) 5000
B) 5005
C) 5050
D) 5650

Correct Answer : 5005
Explanation :

Total number of person = 8 men + 7 women = 15
No. of groups can be formed of 6 persons= 15C6 = 15! / {6! *(15 - 6)!} = 15! / (6! * 9!)
= (15 x 14 x 13 x 12 x 11 x 10) / (6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1)
= 5005

In a chess competition involving some boys and girls of a school, every student had to play exactly one game with every other student. It was found that in 45 games both the players were girls and in 190 games both were boys. The number of games in which one player was a boy and the other was a girl is?


एक स्कूल के कुछ लड़कों और लड़कियों की शतरंज प्रतियोगिता में, प्रत्येक छात्र को हर दूसरे छात्र के साथ एक खेल खेलना था। यह पाया गया कि 45 खेलों में दोनों खिलाड़ी लड़कियां थीं और 190 खेलों में दोनों लड़के थे। उन खेलों की संख्या जिनमें एक खिलाड़ी लड़का था और दूसरा लड़की थी?

A)
200

B)
216

C)
235

D)
256


Correct Answer :

200


Explanation :

Let there were g girls and b boys.
As given, total number of games in which both players were women gC2 = 45
=> g(g−1)/2=45
=> g2-g-90 = 0
(g - 10)(g + 9) = 0
So, g =10 as g ≠ -9

As given, total number of games in which both players were men bC2 = 190
=>b(b−1)/2=190
=> b2-b-380 = 0
(b - 20)(b + 190) = 0
So, b=20 as b ≠ -190

Total number of games= (g + b)C2 => 30C2 => (30 *29) / (2* 1) => 435

Number of games in which one player is a boy and the other is a girl = 435 - 45 - 190 = 200

In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘DESIGN’ be arranged so that the vowels are at the two ends?
