This is a very simple question of combinations.
A combination is a selection of objects the order of which doesn't matter.
We are making outfits that consist of shirts, pants and shoes.
There are 3 things we need to pick, so we have 3 slots.
The problem tells us we have 4 shirts here, 3 pants here, and 2 shoes here.
To find the total number of combinations of outfits, we can multiply the three together.
So, it's 4 times 3 times 2 equals 24. Our answer is (E).
