Here's the Solution to this Question

4.Total number of ways in which we can do required arrangement = 2!\times 4!=2\times 24=48 ways.

5 (a) Let us assume first than no lilies were used 

    Then there are total = 4^{16}= 4294967296 bunches

(b) Let us assume one lily is present

    Total bunches possible = 4^{15} = 1073741824

(c)Let us assume two lilies are present

   Total bunches Possible = 4^{14}

  Total number of bunches with atmost two lilies-

      =4^{16}+4^{15}+4^{14}=4^{14}(16+4+1)=21\times 4^{14}=56371445 76
