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

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 ?

40
41
42
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 ?

5000
5005
5050
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

A)
200

B)
216

C)
235

D)
256


Correct Answer :

200


Explanation :

Let there were g girls and b boys.
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

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
