  • $C(n,r)=\large\frac{n!}{r!(n-r)!}$
Total vowel=5
Total consonants=21
$\therefore$ The number of selection of 1 pair of vowels and 1 pair of consonants =$5C_1\times 21C_1$
The required number of words =$5C_1\times 21C_1\times \large\frac{4!}{2!2!}$$+5C_2\times 21C_2\times 41$
$\Rightarrow 5\times 21 \times \large\frac{4\times 3\times 2\times 1}{2\times 2}$$+\large\frac{5!}{2!3!}\times \frac{21!}{2!19!}$$\times 4!$
$\Rightarrow 105\times 6+10(210\times 24)$
$\Rightarrow 105\times 6+10(5040)$
$\Rightarrow 630+50400$
$\Rightarrow 57030$
Hence (D) is the correct answer.
