Here are the potential answers:

So... this question is really testing whether we were awake in class the day

our teacher demonstrated the fundamental counting principle.

Basically it's saying that when we have choices, we just multiply them to get the

full suite of POSSIBLE choices in a set.

Consider a simple example: 3 geeks and 2 jocks.

They could pair in the following ways:

These are all 6 ways that could possibly be constructed from a set of 3 choices and a

set of 2 choices -- 3 times 2 is 6 and... well, you get it.

Now we just need to do the same with all the... colors of the human rainbow provided.

So we just... multiply 'em.

We get 2 times 5 times 4 times 5 times 8... which gives us 1600.

And voila...it's answer D.

And now you can make the avatar to end all avatars.
