Solution

## The correct option is A 10C7×6!×3!×2!+ 10C5×4!×5!×2! (i) If A, B are on the first table, then remaining 5 can be selected in 10C5 ways. Now 7 persons including A and B can be arranged on the first table in which A and B are together in 2!×5! ways. Remaining 5 can be arranged on the second table in 4! ways. Total number of ways is = 10C5×4!×5!×2! (ii) If A, B are on the second table, then remaining 3 can be selected in 10C3 ways. Now 5 persons including A and B can be arranged on the second table in which A and B are together in 2!×3! ways. Remaining 7 can be arranged on the first table in 6! ways. Hence, total number of ways= 10C7×6!×3!×2! So the total answer is= 10C5×4!×5!×2!+ 10C7×6!×3!×2!
