Correct Answer - Option 1 : 2880


If we fix a girl, then the rest 4 girls can be arranged in the ways = 4!

There is 1 position between each pair of girl, which means only 5 positions are there.

Ways to arrange 5 boys in those 5 position will be = 5!

∴  The total number of ways N = 5! × 4!

N = 120 × 24

N = 2880 ways
