IMO B
You need to use permutation in this case
8!/(8-4)!=1680

We are given that there are 8 dogs and the owner needs to arrange 4 of them. Since we have an “order arrangement,” order matters. So we have a permutation problem. Thus, the number of ways to arrange 4 dogs from 8 is:

8P4 = 8!/(8-4)! = 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 = 1,680

Answer: B

First we should make a group of 4 dogs which will be let out. Then we will find how many arrangements of such leaving will be possible.

So no. of ways in which a group of 4 dogs can be formed = \(8C4\) = (8*7*6*5)/(4*3*2*1) = 70

The total no. of ways in which the line of dogs leaving the pen are possible = 70 X 4! = 70*4*3*2= 1680


Answer B
