Q:

How many arrangements can be made out of the letters of the word COMMITTEE, taken all at a time, such that the four vowels do not come together?

A) 216 B) 45360
C) 1260 D) 43200

Answer:   D) 43200

Explanation:

There are total 9 letters in the word COMMITTEE in which there are 2M's, 2T's, 2E's.

 The number of ways in which 9 letters can be arranged =  = 45360

There are 4 vowels O,I,E,E in the given word. If the four vowels always come together, taking them as one letter we have to arrange 5 + 1 = 6 letters which include 2Ms and 2Ts and this be done in  = 180 ways.

In which of 180 ways, the 4 vowels O,I,E,E remaining together can be arranged in  = 12 ways.

 The number of ways in which the four vowels always come together = 180 x 12 = 2160.

Hence, the required number of ways in which the four vowels do not come together = 45360 - 2160 = 43200

Q:

How many 6-digit even numbers can be formed from the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 so that the digits should not repeat and the second last digit is even ?

A) 521 B) 720
C) 420 D) 225
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 720

Explanation:

Let last digit is 2
when second last digit is 4 remaining 4 digits can be filled in 120 ways, similarly second last digit is 6 remained 4 digits can be filled in 120 ways.
so for last digit = 2, total numbers=240

Similarly for 4 and 6
When last digit = 4, total no. of ways =240
and last digit = 6, total no. of ways =240
so total of 720 even numbers are possible.
