Thanks for replying. But the answer is 840 only. I think u misjudged the question. in first step u took 14C2 , in this case it is possible that we select 2 husbands but no wife... instead of this it must be like this

7C2 x 7C2 since we want two husbands but two wives also. these are 21 x 21 = 441 ways.

now we want to deduct the unfavorable cases i.e 14 cases i m stuck up at this point how to get the answer ahead?

can anyone help?

actually this question is given in permutation chapter can this be solved without combination ?

Ans= 840 Since in a mixed doubles 2 player play in the que. One husband and one wife will play. No. Of ways husband`s can be chosed is 7p2 and no. Of ways wife could be chosen will be 5p2 as the wife of two husband chosen shouldn`t include. thus and 7p2 × 5p2= 840

In any of the matches, the total players playing in the game would be 4 i.e (one male one female) vs (one male one female). Also the male and female constituting the team should not be married couples. So for a match, 2 males and 2 females are essential. Therefore we select 2 males from total 7 males by 7P2. Now, females to be selected shouldn't be the wives of the 2 males selected. Therefore we select 2 females fromfemales (The two females excluded are the wives of the selected males). So we use 5P2 for females.5Thus total no. of arrangements of all possible matches becomes 5P2 * 7P2.
