##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Permutation and Combination: Normal Selection applies for the extra person!!

We can distribute boys in 2-1-1-1 fashion , that is we can put two boys in one room and the other rooms will have one boy each.We can pick two boys out of the 6 in 6C2 ways.And these two boys can be alloted to any one of the rooms in 5 ways. The remaining rooms can be filled in 4*3*2*1 ways.
SO, Totally the number of ways is 6C2*5! ways.

The question is "In how many ways can 6 boys be allotted into 5 rooms such that no room is empty and all 6 boys are accommodated?"

##### Hence the answer is "15 * 5 ! ways "

Choice D is the correct answer.
