Q)

Four couples (husband and wife)decide to form a committee of four members. How many committees can be formed so that no couple finds a place in it?

1. all men = $^4C_4=1$ or
2. all women =$^4C_4=1$ or
$=^4C_3\times ^1C_1=4$ or
$=^4C_3\times ^1C_1=4$ or
$=^4C_2\times ^2C_2=6$
$\therefore$ The required no. of committees = $1+1+4+4+6=16$
