1 Answer

  • No. of arrangement of n different things out of which 'm' are of one category = $\large\frac{n!}{m!}$
The no. of arrangement of 10 speakers without any condition = $(10)!$
A,B, C can speak any order = $3!$ ways.
But A,B,C has a fixed arrangement.
$\therefore$ The required arrangement = $\large\frac{(10)!}{6}$
