Answer: Option A

Solution(By Examveda Team)

The given word contains 5 different letters.
Keeping the vowels UE together, we suppose them as 1 letter.
Then, we have to arrange the letters JDG (UE).
Now, we have to arrange in 4! = 24 ways.
The vowels (UE) can be arranged among themselves in 2 ways.
∴ Required number of ways = (24 × 2) = 48
