As Jhon can exhibit one OR more picture (including X) so number of ways could be -

Exhibiting 1 picture "X" OR exhibiting 2 Pictures OR exhibiting 3 pictures OR exhibiting 4 pictures OR exhibiting 5 pictures OR exhibiting 6 pictures

= 1 + 5C1 + 5C2+ 5C3 + 5C4+ 5C5 (as "X" is fixed, we are left with 5 pictures to choose from)
= 1+5+10+10+5+1 = 32

Since John can exhibit 1 or more of his 6 pictures, it can be done in

1(if all the pictures are displayed)
1(if only X is displayed)
1*5c1 = 5 (if X and 1 of the other 5 are displayed)
1*5c2 = 10 (if X and 2 of the other 5 are displayed)
1*5c3 = 10 (if X and 3 of the other 5 are displayed)
1*5c4 = 5(if X and 4 of the other 5 are displayed)

Total ways : 1+5+10+10+5+1 = 32(Option D)

John has 6 pictures.

Exhibiting 6 pictures could be in following ways;

He must exhibit picture X. Possible ways for \(X = 1\)

\(5_C_1 = \frac{5!}{4!1!} = 5\)

\(5_C_2 = \frac{5!}{3!2!} = 10\)

\(5_C_3 = \frac{5!}{2!3!} = 10\)

\(5_C_4 = \frac{5!}{4!1!} = 5\)

\(5_C_5 = \frac{5!}{5!} = 1\)

Therefore total number of ways John can exhibit the pictures \(= 1+5+10+10+5+1 = 32\)

Total ways of exhibiting pictures= 2^6 (2 options for each picture=yes/no) :64
Total ways when picture X is not exhibited= 1*2^5 : 32
So total ways when X is always included= 64-32: 32
