Solution

## The correct option is D 3630Part A can be attempted in 3 ways (i) The student do not solve the question. (ii) The student attemps the first part of the question. (iii) The student attempts the second (i.e., alternative) part of the question. ∴ Total number of choices in the first part =35 Hence, the required number of ways in which a student must attempt at least one question =35−1=242 Similarly we can show that there are 24−1 i.e., 15 choices of part B. Hence the required number of ways =242×15=3630.
