If P has to be one vertex then we are left with 4 points (Q,R,S,T) and we need to select 2 out of these 4 points to form a triangle with P as one of vertex
4C2 = 6

D

Ans : d - 6

If P is one vertex , Then the remaining no of vertex are 4.

No of ways of selecting 2 points out of 4 = 4C2 =6.

The solution should be Option D.

Can be solved using permutations and combinations formula to choose 2 more vertices from the remaining 4 points.

Can be written as

4C2 = 4!/2!(4-2)!
=4!/2!*2!
which comes to 6.

Since one of the point P is fixed we need 2 points from the remaining 4 points

So 4C2 = 6

Hence answer = D

The total triangles possible : 5C3
number of triangles with P as vertex = (total triangle possible) - (No. of triangle without P as vertex)
= 5C3 - 4C3
= 10 - 4
= 6
Option D is answer.
