Answer is D.


In this problem along with selection order is important. So, we should use permutation.

(10P3)=10*9*8=720 ways

Other way of solving:
choosing 3 movies out of 10 can be done in 10c3 ways = 120
the selected 3 movies can be watched in 3! ways.

so, selecting AND watching can be done in 120*3! ways = 720
