  1. An electric bus has onboard instruments that report the total electricity consumed since the start of the trip as well as the total distance covered. During a single day of operation, the bus travels on stretches M, N, O and P, in that order. The cumulative distances travelled and the corresponding electricity consumption are shown in the table below.

    The stretch where the electricity consumption per km is minimum is
    1. M
    2. N
    3. O
    4. P

    The digit in unit place is selected in 4! Ways
    The digit in tens place is selected in 4! Ways
    The digit in hundreds place is selected in 4! Ways
    The digit in thousands place is selected in 4! Ways
    The digit in ten thousands place is selected in 4! Ways
    Sum of all values for 1
    4! × 1 × (100 + 101 + 102 + 103 +104) = 4! × 11111 × 1
    Similarly for ‘3’ 4! × (11111) × 3
    Similarly for ‘5’ 4! × (11111) × 5
    Similarly for ‘7’ 4! × (11111) × 7
    Similarly for ‘9’ 4! × (11111) × 9
    ∴ sum of all such numbers
    4! × (11111)× (1+ 3 + 5 + 7 + 9)
    = 24 × (11111) × 25
    = 6666600

    Correct Option: B

    The digit in hundreds place is selected in 4! Ways
    The digit in thousands place is selected in 4! Ways
    The digit in ten thousands place is selected in 4! Ways
    Sum of all values for 1
    4! × 1 × (100 + 101 + 102 + 103 +104) = 4! × 11111 × 1
    Similarly for ‘3’ 4! × (11111) × 3
    Similarly for ‘5’ 4! × (11111) × 5
    Similarly for ‘7’ 4! × (11111) × 7
    Similarly for ‘9’ 4! × (11111) × 9
    ∴ sum of all such numbers
    4! × (11111)× (1+ 3 + 5 + 7 + 9)
    = 24 × (11111) × 25
    = 6666600
