How many Permutations of the letters of the word APPLE are there?

A. 600

B. 120

C. 240

D. 60

Answer: Option D

Solution(By Examveda Team)

APPLE = 5 letters.
But two letters PP is of same kind.
Thus, required permutations,
$$\eqalign{ & = \frac{{5!}}{{2!}} \cr & = \frac{{120}}{2} \cr & = 60 \cr} $$

    5!=5×4×3×2×1=120
    PP repeated so 2!=2×1 =2
    =5!÷2!
    =60
