I think this is a simple case of permutations. So for this P(4,2) = 4!/(4-2)! = 24/2 = 12.

No?

= 4C2+4C3+4C4
= 6+4+1 =11

Will go for D.

How did you get 12.. Show your steps.

x2suresh is right. This is a combinations problem not a permutations problem. -1 for me.

6 possible number with any two of the prime factors + 4 possible with three of the primes + 1 possible with all four = 11
