  • $c(n,r)=\large\frac{n!}{r!(n-r)!}$
Total white balls =2
Total black balls =3
Total red balls =4
The possibilities to draw three balls with atleast one black ball =(1 black+2 non black)+(2 black+1 non black)+(3 black+0 non black)
$\Rightarrow 3C_1\times 6C_2+3C_2\times 6C_1+3C_3\times 6C_0$
$\Rightarrow 45+18+1$
$\Rightarrow 64$
Hence (C) is the correct answer.
