**B**

53770.

**C**

53750.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

We can make the selection in ^{4}C_{3} × ^{8}C_{2} + ^{4}C_{2} × ^{8}C_{3} ways. But the five members can themselves be arranged in 5! ways. So the number of words is 120 × (^{4}C_{3} × ^{8}C_{2} + ^{4}C_{2} × ^{8}C_{3}) = 53760.

15140.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

We can make the selection in ^{3}C_{3} × ^{7}C_{2} + ^{3}C_{2} × ^{7}C_{3} ways. But the five members can themselves be arranged in 5! ways. So the number of words is 120 × (^{3}C_{3} × ^{7}C_{2} + ^{3}C_{2} × ^{7}C_{3}) = 15120.
