D
None of these

Solution

## The correct option is B 86400At first we have to accommodate those 5 animals in cages which can not enter in 4 small cages,$$\therefore$$Number of ways $$=^6P_5$$Now after accommodating 5 animals we left with 5 cages and 5 animals,$$\therefore$$ Number of ways $$=5!$$Hence,Required number of ways $$=^6P_5\times5!=\dfrac{6!}{(6-5)!}\times5!=6!\times5!=86400$$Maths
