Step 1:
Given the word ASSASSINATION
Two I's and two N's come together
Considering two I's and two N's as one letter
$\therefore$ Total number of letters =10 and they can be arranged in 4! ways.
Step 2:
$\therefore P=\large\frac{10!}{13!}$$\times 4!$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{2}{143}$
Hence (B) is the correct answer.
