I do it like this there are 5 positions to be filled and 6 candidate alphapbets who can fill them.

Now since the candidates cant be repeated the first position can have

1st can have 6 candidate alphabets
2nd can have 5 candidate alphabets
3rd can have 4
4th can have 3
5th can have 2

So in total u have 6x5x4x3x2 that is 6 !

6p6 will be 6!/(6-6)! Which will be 6!/0!

This implies answer is 6p6
option ( A )
