Dear Abhipsa

KANYAKUMARI =2 K +3 A + 1N + 1Y + 1U + 1M + 1R +1I

Case letter does not include A and K

total number of 4 letter word can be formed =6C4  4!................1

total number of 4 letter word that has different letter can be formed =6C4  4!................2

case letter include A but not K

total number of 4 letter word can be formed =1*6C3  4! + 1*1*6C2  4!/2!   +1*1*1*6C1  4!/3! ( when 1 A ,2A and 3A are included respestively)...............3

total number of 4 letter word that has different letter can be formed =1*  6C3  4! ...........4

case letter include K but not A

total number of 4 letter word can be formed =1*6C3  4! + 1*1*6C2  4!/2!   + ( when 1 K ,2K  are included respestively).................5

total number of 4 letter word that has different letter can be formed =1*  6C3  4!...............6

case letter  K and  A both included

total number of 4 letter word can be formed =1*1*6C2  4! + 1*2*6C1  4!/2!   + 1*3*6C0  4!/3! +2*1*6C2  4!/2! +2*2*6C0  4!/2! 2!( when 1 K 1A ,1K2A,1K3A,2k1A,2K 2A   are included respestively).................7

total number of 4 letter word that has different letter can be formed =1*1*  6C2  4!...............8

so pobability =(2+4+6+8)/(1+3+5+7)

put value of above equation and calculate
