5. A binary tree starts with a single root node at the top of the tree. Each node can have either a left child or a right child, or both, or neither. The children of a node are drawn below it, connected by edges. Here are the five possible binary trees with three nodes. Note that the directions left and right of the children matter. In the second tree, the root has a left child that has a left child, while, in the fourth tree, the root has a left child that has a right child, and so on. How many different binary trees can be constructed with four nodes?
(a) 13
(b) 15
(c) 14
(d) 30

7. Fifteen telephones are received at a service center. Of these, 5 are mobile, 6 are cordless, and 4 are wired. These 15 phones are randomly numbered from 1 to 15 to establish the order in which they are serviced. Which of the following statement(s) is/are correct?
(a) The probability that among the first 3 serviced, the first and third are mobile and the second is not, is 5 × 10 × 415 × 14 × 13 .
(b) The probability that the first four serviced are all the wired phones, is 1(154) .
(c) The probability that after servicing ten of these phones, only one of the three types remain to be serviced, is(65)(155) .
(d) The probability that two phones of each type are among the first six serviced, is (52) + (62) + (42)(156) .4
