QA – Placement Quizzes | Permutation and Combination | Question 14

In how many different ways can the alphabets of the word ‘SCORING’ be arranged so that the vowels always come together?
(A) 120
(B) 720
(C) 240
(D) 1440


Answer: (D)

Explanation: We have 5 consonants and 2 vowels.
Since, the vowels must always come together, we can treat them as a single alphabet.
Then, we have to arrange 6 alphabets.
Number of ways to arrange 6 alphabets = 6! = 720.
The two vowels can be arranged in 2! Ways. So, the required number of ways = 6! * 2! = 1440.
