Under the restriction first digit can be selected 5 ways.After the selection of first digit four digits are left.Second digit can be selected in 4 ways and third digit can be selected in 3 ways.
The total number of ways of selecting three digits is $5\times 4\times 3=60$
Hence (C) is the correct answer.
