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


(1,1,1)


(2,2,2)


....


....


(6,6,6).


 


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.
