Again the 3 students can be arranged among themselves in 3! ways

= 120*6 = 720

If ur familiar w/ MGMAT method try usin anagram method

We have: students ABC seats XXXXXXXXXX

So 3 students will occupy 3 seats so
XXXXXXXXXX
123 NNNNNNN

Essentially its written like this 10!/1!1!1!7! --->
10*9*8-> 720
