Hey ,

7 men can be seated arround a table in 6! ways.
Now 7 women can be seated in the 7 places between the men in 7! ways.

So the answer must be 6!x7!

Are u sure that the above options are correct?

but i get 2*7!*7!.

they have to sit alternate. so we just fix the seats for men and for women.

1). men have 7! and women have 7!.

2). now men and women exchange seats. this is another arrangement since they are sitting on different seats. 2 times.

then i get that result.
