Out of 10 students, 5 students can be chosen in 10C5 ways.

Out of the 5 chosen students, note taker role can be taken in 5 ways
Since the note taker role is already taken by 1 student, the treasure role can be taken in 4 ways

Total number of ways = 10C5 * 5 * 4 = 5040

5 students can be selected out of 10 students in 10C5 ways.
out of the remaining 5 students,Note taker can be chosen in 5 ways.
Finally only 4 students remain from which we can choose a treasurer in 4 ways.
Total number of ways = 252 * 5 *4 = 5040
correct answer - C

Choosing 5 out of 10 students : 10C5

Out of the chosen 5, we need to select a treasurer and a note taker, i.e., 2 roles. As the same person cant take both the roles, thus, selecting 2 people of the chosen 5 : 5C2
These 2 people can be arranged in 2! ways, i.e., either of them can be a note taker or a treasurer.

So, total ways : \(10C5*5C2*2!\) = 5040
