Explanation

Start by finding out how many groups of three seniors can be chosen from the five seniors: \(\frac{5}{3} \times \frac{4}{2} \times \frac{3}{1}=10\).

Next, multiply that total by the number of individual juniors with which those groups can be paired (7) to form the full committee: 10 × 7 = 70. Quantity B is greater.

J=7
S=5

Since we need 3J and 1S, 5C3 = 5*4*3!/2!3!=10 and 7C1=7, hence 7*10=70.
Therefore B is greater
