QA – Placement Quizzes | Permutation and Combination | Question 7
In how many ways can 20 boys and 18 girls make a queue such that no two girls are together?
(A) 20!* 20C18
(B) 20!* 20P18
(C) 20!* 21C18
(D) 20!* 21P18
Explanation: The boys will be arranged in 20! ways. Now, there are a total of 21 possible places available between boys such that no 2 girls can be placed together (alternate sequence of boys and girls, starting and ending positions for girls).

Hence, the number of ways = 20!* 21P18
