GMAT CLUB'S CHALLENGE QUESTIONS:
How many positive four-digit integers have their digits in ascending order from thousands to units?
A. 6
B. 7
C. 84
D. 126
E. 210
First Digit - A
Second Digit - B
Third Digit - C
Fourth Digit - D
A can be 1-6
B can be 2-7
C can be 3-8
D can be 4-9
A=1; B = 2; C = 3 ; D = 6 options
A=1; B = 2; C = 4; D = 5 options
A = 1; B=2; C = 5; D = 4 options
A = 1; B=2; C = 6; D = 3 options
A = 1; B=2; C = 7; D = 2 options
A = 1; B=2; C = 8; D = 1 options
So When A =1 and B=2 then we have 21 options
WHen A = 1 and B=3 then we have 15 options
When A =1 and B=4 then we have 10 options
When A = 1 and B=5 then we have 6 options
When A = 1 and B=6 then we have 3 options
When A = 1 and B=7 then we have 1 option
So When A =1 we have 56 options
WHen A = 2 we have 35 options
When A = 3 we have 20 options
When A = 4 we have 10 options
When A = 5 we have 4 options
When A = 6 we have 1 option
Alltogether we have 56+35+20+10+4+1 = 126 options
D
Please correct me if i am wrong
