    Answer: (1) 25200

    Solution:-

    Number of ways of selecting 3 consonants out of 7 = 7C3
    Number of ways of selecting 2 vowels out of 4 = 4C2
    Number of ways of selecting 3 consonants out of 7 and 2 vowels out of 4 = 7C3 x 4C2
    =(7×6×5/3×2×1)×(4×32×1)=210
    It means that we can have 210 groups where each group contains total 5 letters   (3 consonants
    and 2 vowels).

    Number of ways of arranging 5 letters among themselves = 5!
    = 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120

    Then, Required number of ways = 210 x 120 = 25200

    Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 25200.
