Hi Debadutta,


(a,b,c) can be

(1,2,3) -------- 2 possibilities (3,2,1) is the other order

(2,3,4) -------- 2 possibilities

.....     --------- -do-


(4,5,6) -------- -do-


it could be

(1,3,5) -------- 2 possibilities

(2,4,6) -------- 2 possibilities


or it could be







So total number of ways = 2*6 + 6 = 18.


Your answer is very fine.

Have confidence in your working. It helps for competitive exam prearation.

21/216 is not the right answer.
