**Here's the Solution to this Question**

1.

$N=C^2_5=\frac{5!}{3!2!}=10$ ways

2.

$N=C^5_{10}\cdot C^3_6=\frac{10!}{5!5!}\cdot \frac{6!}{3!3!}=5040$ ways

3.

a.

$N=C^1_6 \cdot C^1_5\cdot C^1_3=6\cdot5\cdot 3=90$ ways

b.

$N=C^3_6=\frac{6!}{3!3!}=20$ ways

c.

$N=C^2_5\cdot C^1_3=\frac{5!}{2!3!}\cdot \frac{3!}{2!}=30$ ways

d.

$N=C^2_5\cdot C^1_9=\frac{5!}{2!3!}\cdot \frac{9!}{8!}=90$ ways

e.

$N=C^3_{11}=\frac{11!}{8!3!}=165$ ways

f.

$N=C^2_3\cdot C^1_{11}+C^3_3=\frac{3!}{2!}\cdot \frac{11!}{10!}+1=34$ ways
