2) 20

Think of it as the word DDDCA, the number of ways of rearranging this is 5!/3!, where 5 is the total number and 3 is the number of repeating characters.

or

Ways of selecting 3 out of 5, 5C3 = 5!/3!2! = 10, then 2 ways of arranging the other 2, 10*2 = 20

Since Carly has to watch the drama 3 seperate times, you can really consider it 3 different movies. 5!/3!=20.
