### Solution(By Examveda Team)

5C1 × 3C1 - 1
= 15 - 1
= 14

This Question Belongs to Arithmetic Ability >> Permutation And Combination

1. (2×5)+(3×4)
=22

2. (5C1*3C1)-1
=(5!/4!*3!/2!)-1
=(5*3)-1
=15-1
=14

3. It may b clear tht one men and one women
Selected as 5c1*3c1
15

Now A female and B male can be selected frm this only once no..
Ie only one time a and b come together.

So if u minus 15-1..14 times they don't come tgthr

4. we have to select 1 male members from 5 males and 1 female member
from 3 females if B male taken as a member then A refuses to a member
hence BA can not be a members
5c1*3c1-1

5. please explain me the solution of this problem in details. I m not getting it. Reply asap. thank u.
