  • $nP_r=\large\frac{n!}{(n-r)!}$
Out of 5 digits 4 digit numbers are to be formed
Such numbers are $5P_4$
$\;\;\;\;\;\;\;=5\times 4\times 3\times 2$
When 2 is at unit's place ,then remaining three places are filled in $4P_3$ ways
$\qquad=4\times 3\times 2$
When 4 is at units place,then 4 digit numbers are again =24
$\therefore$ Even 4 digit numbers =$2\times 24$
$\Rightarrow 48$
Hence (D) is the correct answer.
