```							Thanks you sir.This question appeared in this year JEE mains(8th JAn morning shift).If we assume all 5 red balls are identical. Likewise all 3 white balls are identical and so for black ball.Answer should be = 12.However, if we dont assume balls to be identical, answer would be 490. Which is given as correct answer as per JEE mains site answer key.  I am confused should I challenge this question. Please suggest.
