1) the first letter must be Y
you fix the first space as Y. remaining 4 spaces can be filled in 4*3*2*1 ways = 4!
2) must begin with consonant. and vowels and consonants alternate (vowels, consonants must not be together)
3 consonants , 2 vowels
you can choose first letter from 3 consonants in : 3 ways
after that, you can choose second letter from 2 VOWELS in : 2 ways
after that, you can choose third letter from remaining 2 consonants in : 2 ways
after that, you can choose fourth letter from remaining 1 VOWELS in : 1 ways
finally, you can choose third letter from remaining 1 consonants in : 1 ways
so total possible ways = 3*2*2*1*1 = 12
