3 St(Shirts), 2 Sh(Shoes), 3 P(Pants)

3 days
Probability of just shirts to be in 3 different days:
on first day can pick any of the three (3/3)
On second day can pick rest 2, i.e. not picked on the first day( so random picking probability of picking rest 2 od 3 shirts) = 2/3
Similarly 3rd day = 1/3
So probability of having 3 different St in 3 different days = $$(3/3)*(2/3)*(1/3)=2*[(1/3)^2]$$

Probability of Pants will be the same as similar 3 different pants on 3 different days= $$2*[(1/3)^2]$$

Probability of same shoes on 3 different days
1st day = any 2 of 2 = 2/2
2nd day the same one of the 2 = 1/2
3rd day= 1/2
same shoes probability on 3 days=(2/2)*(1/2)*(1/2) = $$(1/2)^2$$

So total probability = $$2*[(1/3)^2]*2*[(1/3)^2]*(1/2)^2$$ = = $$(1/3)^4$$

P= 3*2*3*2*1*2*1*1*1/3*2*3*3*2*3*3*2*3 = 1/3^4
C is my choice.
