In how many different ways can six players be arranged in a line such that two of them, Asim and Raheem are never together?

A. 120
B. 240
C. 360
D. 480 (Correct)

Explanation:

1. As there are six players, So total ways in which they can be arranged = 6!ways =720.

A number of ways in which Asim and Raheem are together = 5!x2 = 240.

Therefore, Number of ways when they don’t remain together = 720 -240 =480.
