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.
