Detailed Solution

For nCr to be defined, we should have r greater than or equal to zero and, n greater than or equal to r.

Therefore 9 – x ≥ x + 1 or 4 ≥ x and

also x + 1 > 0 or x > –1

Therefore x takes on the values {–1,0,1,2,3,4}

Therefore domain = {–1,0,1,2,3,4} and range = {10C0,9C1,8C2,7C3,6C4,5C5}

There are 6 elements in the domain.

Answer choice (b).


Correct Answer: 6
