I don't have it clear and I appreciate if any explain it for me. Thanks. Hi AAPL, Let's take a look at your question. Jerry has 3 flavors of ice cream in his parlor. Let the flavors be A, B and C. Let's find out the number of options for George to pick a one flavor ice cream. George can pick any of the three flavors A, B or C. So George has 3 options to choose from. Let's find out the number of options for George to pick two flavor ice cream. George can pick either of the following combinations of two flavors. A and B A and C B and C Therefore, George can pick 3 options of two flavor ice cream. Let's find out the number of options for George to pick three flavor ice cream. George has only 1 option to pick a three flavor ice cream i.e. A, B, C. Therefore the total options for George to pick a one-flavor, two-flavor or three-flavor order = 3 + 3 + 1 = 7 Hence, Option D is correct. Hope it helps. I am available if you'd like any follow up. _________________ GMAT Prep From The Economist We offer 70+ point score improvement money back guarantee. Our average student improves 98 points.
