3)In how many ways 10 identical prizes can be distributed among

Soln.
A very Important Formula:
x1+x2+x3+...+xn = A
has
(A+n-1)C(n-1) no. of solns.

Here we can write:
x1+x2+..+x6=10
But as x1>=1,...,x2>=1
Then,
let y1=x1-1y2=x2-1,...,y3=x3-1.
So eqn now becomes
x1+x2+x3+..+x6-6=10-6=4
No. of soln
(4+6-1)C(6-1)=9C5

So option (c) is correct...

Giv ur best to d world.
Nd d best will cm back to u..

Thank you specialy to you.

Dipanjan....

4)There are three rooms in a motel: one sing

Soln.:
Easy one..
Formula: Out of n items where p,q,r are identical dn no. of ways to select:
n!/(p!*q!*r!)
Here so total no. of persons=7
Identical 1,2,4.
Total ways:
7!/(1!*2!*4!)

So option (a) is correct...

Giv ur best to d world.
Nd d best will cm back to u....

5) A set of 15 different words are given

@Shivani
Yes answer is right.
The qs demands the no. of subsets not the no. of ways..
Though I Dnt know whether that process is correct or not..
But I think
15c1+..+15c4=4933
As we know NULL SET is a subset of any set
So answer is:4933+1=4934[1 for that NULL SET]

Giv ur best to d world.
Nd d best will cm back to u....

Dipanjan..........
