KRANTI has two Vowels A and I and four consonants K, R, N and T

- - - - - - are the places to be filled by these letters

Leftmost letter can't be vowel hence can be chosen in 4 ways out of consonants
4 - - - - -

Remaining 5 places can be filled by remaining 5 letters in 5*4*3*2*1 = 5! ways

i.e. TOtal required arrangements = 4*5*4*3*2*1 = 480
