(A) 1638
(B) 2100
(C) 2640
(D) None of the above


Answer: (C)

Explanation: Assume the two girls only have 10 roses. They can share these in (11 choose 1) = 11C1 = 11 ways.
Similarly, they can share 15 sunflowers and 14 daffodils in
(15 choose 1) = 15C1 = 16 ways
(14 choose 1) = 14C1 = 15 ways
So, they can share all the flowers in 11 * 16 * 15 = 2640 ways
So, option (C) is correct.
