Selection of boys 3!/2! = 3
Selection of girls 4!/3! =4
so the different group should be 3*4= 12
So the option C

Since the two events, i.e, picking 2 boys out of 3 and 3 girls out of 4 are two independent events, we can use the combinations approach.

1. Break the question into tasks: Picking 2 boys out of 3 can be done in 3C2 ways = 3
2. Picking 3 girls out of 4 can be done in 4C3 ways = 4
3. Total number of ways to create this group of 5 = 3 x 4 = 12 ways

Answer is C

In order to choose 2 boys from 3, we can choose it in 3c2 ways or 3 ways

In order to choose 3 girls from 4, we can choose it in 4c3 ways or 4 ways.

Therefore, the ways to choose 2 boys and 3 girls are 3*4=12(Option C)
