A)40320

B)1680

C)1152

D)576

E)70

okay you got 2 ways of assigning alternate places to either male or female

hence 2

now any of the alternate 4 places can be filled by 4 male or female in 4!

similarily,

other 4 alternate places can be filled in 4!

hence required probability= 2*4!*4!=1152

hence C

Hope this helps..!!
