Explanation

First find the number of groups of fish he can select. This is your number of slots: _ _ _ __.

There are six fish he can choose for the first slot, 5 for the second and so on: 6543.

Since order doesn’t matter, you need to divide by the factorial of the number of slots: \(\frac{6213}{4321}\). Reduce your number to get 3 × 5 = 15.

For plants you have two slots so = \(3/2 \times 2/1 = 3.3 \times 15 =45\).

The answer is choice D.
