**Q.1.**In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘JUDGE’ be arranged in such a way that the vowels always come together?

a)
160 b) 120 c) 48
d) 124 e) 96

Ans: c

Explanation:

In the word ‘JUDGE’ the vowels are ‘UE’

When vowels are taken together it will be treated as
one letter

Then the number ways of arrangement of ‘JDG(UE) = 4!

The two vowels can be arranged in 2 ways i.e. 2!

Therefore, the required number of ways = 4! × 2! =
24 × 2 =

**48 ways****Q.2.**How many 4-letter words with or without meaning, can be formed out of the letters of the word, 'LOGARITHMS', if repetition of letters is not allowed?

a) 1024
b) 540 c) 5040 d) 2520
e) 400

Ans: c

Explanation:

The word ‘LOGARITHMS’ contain 10 letters

Number of 4- letter words, which can be formed from
this 10 letters =

^{10}P_{4}= 10 × 9 × 8 × 7
=

**5040 words****Q.3.**In how many ways a committee, consisting of 5 men and 6 women can be formed from 8 men and 10 women?

a)
5470 b) 5040 c) 86400
d) 11760 e) 2660

Ans: d

Explanation:

Required number of ways =

^{8}C_{5 }×^{10}C_{6}
= 8 ×
7 × 10× 7 × 3 =

**11760****Q. 4.**How many 3-digit numbers can be formed from the digits 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 which are divisible by 5 and none of the digits is repeated?

a) 5 b) 10 c) 15
d) 20 e) 25

Ans: d

Explanation:

Because the numbers should be divisible by 5, the
unit’s digit of each numbers must be 5.

Such number of ways =1

The digit at the 10

^{th}place should be any of the remaining 5 digits = 5ways
Then the 100

^{th}digit should be any one from the remaining 4 digits = 4 ways
Therefore, the total number of numbers formed as
such = 1 × 5 × 4 =

**20****Q. 5.**The value of

^{75}P_{2}
a)
2550 b) 2775 c) 1555
d) 5550 e) None of these

Ans: d

Explanation:

^{n}P

_{r}= n!/(n – r)!

^{75}P

_{2}= 75!/73! = 75 × 74 × 73!/73! = 75 × 74 =

d) 1890 e) 7560

Ans: e

Explanation:

In the word 'ALLAHABAD’ there are 4A, 2L, 1H, 1B and
1D = 9

Required number of word = 9!/ 4! × 2! × 1! × 1! × 1!
= 9 × 8 × 7 × 6 × 5 × 4!/4! × 2

= 9 × 8 × 7 × 3 × 5 =

a) 3600 b) 2400 c) 3200
d) 2800 e) None of these

Ans: a

Explanation:

5 periods can be organized in

^{6}P_{5}ways
Remaining period can be arranged in

^{5}P_{1}ways
Therefore, the total number of ways =

^{6}P_{5 }×^{5}P_{1}
= (6 × 5× 4 × 3 × 2) × 5 =

**3600****Q. 9.**How many 6 digit telephone numbers can be formed if each number starts with 35 and no digit appears more than once?

Ans: e

Explanation:

The first two places can be filled in only 1 way
using 3 and 5.

Remaining 4 places can be filled with any of the 8
remaining digits in

^{8}P_{4}ways = 8 × 7 × 6 × 5
=
