##### How many 3-digit numbers can be formed from the digits 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 assuming that repetition of the digits is not allowed ?
 1) 30 2) 48 3) 60 4) 120 5) None of these
Explanation :
Let the 3-digit number be ABC, where C is at the units place, B at the tens place and A at the hundreds place.
Now when repetition is not allowed,
The number of digits possible at C is 5. Let’s suppose one of 5 digits occupies place C, now as the repletion is not allowed, the possible digits for place B are 4 and similarly there are only 3 possible digits for place A.
Therefore, The total number of possible 3-digit numbers = 5 × 4 × 3=60 View Answer
##### How many 3-digit numbers can be formed from the digits 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 assuming that repetition of the digits is allowed ?
 1) 60 2) 90 3) 120 4) 240 5) None of these
Explanation : Let the 3-digit number be ABC, where C is at the units place, B at the tens place and A at the hundreds place.
Now when repetition is allowed,
The number of digits possible at C is 5. As repetition is allowed, the number of digits possible at B and A is also 5 at each.
Hence, the total number possible 3-digit numbers =5 × 5 × 5 =125 View Answer
##### A boy has 3 library tickets and 8 books of his interest in the library. Of these 8, he does not want to borrow Chemistry part II unless Chemistry part I is also borrowed. In how many ways can he choose the three books to be borrowed?
 1) 26 2) 27 3) 41 4) 56 5) None of these View Answer
##### In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘PREVIOUS’ be arranged in such a way that the vowels always come together?
 1) 2420 2) 2880 3) 3260 4) 4840 5) None of these
Explanation :
Treating the group of four vowels (E, I O and U) as one distinct letter then total number of letters will be 8 - 4 + 1 = 5 [i.e. P, R, V, S and (E, I, O, U)].
The five letters can be arranged in 5! = 120 ways The vowels among themselves can be arranged in 4! = 24 ways,
The letters of the word ‘PREVIOUS’ can be arranged in 120 × 24 = 2880 ways such that vowels always come together. View Answer
##### There are  5 men and 3 women to form a committee of 5-members where at least 3 men are there. How many way they can be selected ?
 1) 42 2) 45 3) 46 4) 54 5) None of these
Explanation :  Total ,5 men and 3 women i.e. 8 persons.
So, 3 men can selected from 5 men.
They can selected in (5C3  x 3 C2 ) or (5C4  x 3 C1 ) or (5C5  x 3 C0
Total numbers of way to select = [(5 x 4 )/2 x 3 ] +[(5 ) x 3 ] + [(1x 1) ] = 46 View Answer
##### There are 5 professors from IIT Delhi and 3 professors from IIT Bombay who are sitting together to discuss a matter at a round table. In how many ways can they sit around the table so that no two professors from IIT Bombay are together ?
 1) 600 2) 840 3) 1200 4) 1440 5) None of these
Explanation : Given, no professors of IIT-B together. Suppose, we first arrange 5 prof. IIT-D and after that we can arrange the IIT-B in space between IIT-D.
So, numbers of way of arranging  the IIT-Bin the circle = (5-1)! = 24 ways.
Numbers of way of arranging IIT-B will be by placing them in 5 space that are formed between the IIT-D.
This can be arranged in 5p3 = 60 ways.
therefore, total number of ways = 24 x 60 =1440 View Answer
##### A box contains 2 white balls, 3 black balls and 4 red balls. In how many ways can 3 balls be drawn from the box, if at least one black ball is to be included in the draw ?
 1) 32 2) 48 3) 56 4) 64 5) None of these
Explanation : Out of total 10 balls,  View Answer
##### In how many ways a committee, consisting of 5 men and 6 women can be formed from 8 men and 10 women ?
 1) 266 2) 5040 3) 11760 4) 86400 5) None of these
Explanation : From 8 men and 10 women , the committee can be formed in following ways.  View Answer
##### How many words with or without meaning, can be formed by using all the letters of the word, 'DELHI' using each letter exactly once ?
 1) 60 2) 120 3) 180 4) 240 5) None of these
Explanation :
The word 'DELHI' has 5 letters and all these letters are different.

Total words (with or without meaning) formed by using all these 5 letters using each letter exactly once

= Number of arrangements of 5 letters taken all at a time =  5P5 = 5! = 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120 View Answer
##### In how many ways can the letters of the word 'LEADER' be arranged ?
 1) 60 2) 120 3) 240 4) 360 5) None of these View Answer
