    d. 16,848,000.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First 3 characters is the number of permutations of 3 numbers from 10

    = 10P3 = 10! / (10-3) ! = 720 possible ways.

    The next 2 characters are letters so the possible permutations are 26P2

    = 26! / (26-2) ! = 650 ways.

    The last character can be any one of 10 + 26 = 36 characters.

    So the answer is 720*650*36

    = 16,848,000.
