Solution

## The correct option is A 336Given that eight students participated in the race. We have to give first second and third prize to those students. For giving first prize there are 8 possible ways. For second prize there are 7 possible ways. Third prize can be given in 6 possible ways. Also, we have to give first "and" second "and" third prize to students. We know that "and" signifies multiplication, So number of ways of giving prizes =8×7×6=336.
