Out of available nine courses,two are compulsory.Hence the student is free to select 3 courses out of 7 remaining courses.If P is the number of ways of selecting 3 courses out of 7 courses,then
$\;\;\;=\large\frac{7\times 6\times 5\times 4!}{3\times 2\times 1\times 4!}$
$\;\;\;=35$ ways
Hence (D) is the correct answer.
