5C3 (Science) * 6C2 (Math) * 4C1 (History) * 5C2 (Other 20-5-6-4 =5; 8-3-2-1 =2) = 10* 15 * 4 * 10 = 6000

Here is what the scenario is:
John requires to chose:
* 3 Science Classes out of 5 science classes on offer.
* 2 Maths Classes out of 6 Maths classes on offer.
* 1 History Class out of 4 History classes on offer.
* 2 remaining classes out 5 other subjects classes on offer.
Total combinations possible are,
5C3 + 6C2 + 4C1 + 5C2 = 6000 which is option D.
