  • $P(n,r)=\large\frac{n!}{(n-r)!}$
Total no of digits in the telephone number =6
Given :
Possible first two digit =41,42,46,62 or 64
$\Rightarrow 5$
First two digits can be filled in 5 ways
The remaining four digit can be filled in =$8P_4$ ways
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{8!}{4!}=\frac{8\times 7\times 6\times 5\times 4!}{4!}$
$\Rightarrow 1680$
Total no of ways =$5\times 1680$
$\Rightarrow 8400$
Hence (C) is the correct answer.
