  • $C(n,r)=\large\frac{n!}{r!(n-r)!}$
Total no. of balls in urn A=3
Total no. of balls in urn B=9
The number of ways in which two balls from urn A and two balls from urn B can be selected =$3C_2\times 9C_2$
$9C_2=\large\frac{9!}{2!7!}=\frac{9\times 8\times 7!}{2!\times 7!}$$=36$
$3C_2\times 9C_2=3\times 36$
$\Rightarrow 108$
Hence (D) is the correct answer.
