    A.

    10 digits

    so there are 10*9*8*7*6 or 30240 combinations

    B.

    ok, the highest one would be

    56789

    the lowest is

    01234

    this is interesting, but it is definitely less that the first option because 54321 is not an option

    C.

    can be repeated

    that is 10⁵ or 100,000 differnt combos

    D.

    same?

    only 10

    00000

    11111

    22222

    33333

    44444

    etc, you get it

    so the most one would be C

    It would be C, with C you have approximately 100,000 combinations. You had 10 with D 0-9. I would think you have 6 combinations with B not completely sure. And A is approximately 30,240 combinations
