Answer: Option B

Solution(By Examveda Team)

The word ‘TRANSPIRATION’ has 13 letters in which each of T, R, A, N and I has come two times
We have to arrange TT RR NN PS (AA II O)
There are five vowels in the given words.
∴ We consider these give vowels as one letter.
∴ Required number of arrangements
$$\eqalign{ & = \frac{{9! \times 5!}}{{2!\, 2! \,2! \,2! \,2!}} \cr & = \frac{{9 \times 8 \times 7 \times 6 \times 5 \times 4 \times 3 \times 2 \times 5 \times 4 \times 3 \times 2}}{{2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2}} \cr & = 1360800 \cr} $$
