    Here's my attempt for 1: Since the candidate has to choose at least one question from each section, the ways of choosing the first question are 5, similarly the second question and third question can be chosen in 5 ways each. So, total ways in which first 3 questions can be chosen is 5x5x5 = 125. Now, there are 12 remaining questions, and he has to choose 2 of them. So, the remaining questions can be chosen in 12C2 ways. Thus, total is 125 x 12C2 = 125 x 66 ways

    Aravind, much better you post one question at a time and digest the answers to one before you move on to the other. If you understand this answer, you will be better able to tackle the next one on your own.

    12P2 simply since the order in which you choose them is considered a different choice

    i think james has what, 60*60*5 = 3600*5 = 18000 5^3 = 125*120 would be my results, i hope tey match lol

    If there are three sections, X, Y, Z, there are a number of different ways to choose 5 questions X Y Z 2 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 2 3 1 1 1 3 1 1 1 3 The number for the first three is \[ 3{5 \choose 2}{5 \choose 2}{5 \choose 1} = 3(10)(10)(5) = 1,500 \] and the number for the second three is \[ 3{5 \choose 3}{5 \choose 1}{5 \choose 1} = 3(10)(5)(5) = 750 \] giving a total of \( 2,250 \). I think the problem with DarthSid's method is there is double (or more) counting. For example, call the questions x1,x2,x3,x4,x5 y1,y2,...,y5 z1,...,z5. Then one of the options under DS's algorithm is 1. Select one from each of x,y,z: let's take x1,y1,z1. 2. Now two of the remaining: let's take x2,y2 Hence the selection is x1,x2,y1,y2,z1 But we can generate that same selection by 1. taking x2,y2,z1 2. then x1,y1 or 1. x1,y2,z1 2. then x2,y1

    my thought process was, and i hold no accuracy for it, was sections 1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3 4 4 4 5 5 5 there are 5^3 ways to satisfy 1 question from each section to get 3 questions that leaves us with 12 questions to arbitrarily pick 2 more questions from in a random order. Hence, 12*11 more results .... but James, as always, looks much more convincing ;)

    What you've laid out is DS's picking algorithm as well. The trouble is that algorithm repeats selections. Took me a minute to figure it out though, because at first blush it looks good.
