Terry can pick one lunch salad bar....we can choose lettuce 2c1 , tomotoes - 3c1 and olives - 4c1...

Two types of soups , if he picks one then 2c1 ways.

Terry decided to have the combo : Soup + salad...Hmmm...

Using the above information, we get ( 2c1 * 2c1* 3c1 * 4c1 ) = 48..

IMO option D is correct answer..

OA please...will correct if I missed anything...

The number of ways to select his lunch is:

2 x 3 x 4 x 2 = 48 ways.
