How many 4-digit numbers can be formed from the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 which are divisible by 5 when none of the digits are repeated? (A) 120 (B) 35 (C) 24 (D) 720

Answer: (A)

Explanation: A number is divisible by 5 if and only if its last digit is either 5 or 0. But, 0 is not available here. So, we have to fix 5 as a last digit of 4-digit number and fill 3 places with remaining 6 digits. Number of ways to choose 3 digits = 6C3 = 20. Number of ways to arrange the chosen digits = 3! Hence, total number of required ways = 6C3 * 3! = 6P3 = 120.
