This can be done in $9C_7+4C_1\times 9C_6+4C_2\times 9C_5+4C_3 \times 9C_4$
$\Rightarrow 9C_2+4C_1\times 9C_3+4C_2 \times 9C_4 +4C_1\times 9C_4$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{9\times 8}{1\times 2}+\frac{4}{1}+\frac{9\times 8\times 7}{1\times 2\times 3 \times 4}+\frac{4}{1}\times \frac{9\times 8\times 7\times 6}{1\times 2\times 3\times 4}$
$\Rightarrow 36+4\times 84 +6\times 126+4\times 126$ ways
$\Rightarrow 36+336+126(6+4)$ ways
$\Rightarrow 36+336+1260$
$\Rightarrow 1632$ ways
Hence (D) is the correct answer.
