If 5 noble knights are to be seated at a round table, then how many different ways can they be seated?

(C) 2008 GMAT Club - m01#24


I believe the answer is 5! = 120, but the OA is 4! = 24. can anyone explain?

Hello ThrillRide,
Welcome to GMATClub Forum.
Since you are new I wont ban you for creating disorder and mess. :lol: Just kidding. No hard feelings :wink:
I guess you just missed our forum dedicated to GMAT Club questions.
So, please post GMATClub questions in the appropriate forum - GMAT Club Tests
Also you can use Master thread on all the tests to check if the question has been discussed already. - gmat-club-tests-master-threads-all-tests-78599.html . (please also read the rules)
Using that thread you would be able to locate the previous discussion - m01-q24-78548.html
Hope that helps, thanks.
