Dear both,

I think we should do in this way:

The first committee member can be chosen in any of the 5 persons,
second from any of the 4 and third from any of the 3, but since order
of choice is not important, and so repeated cases (3x2x1 ways)must be
omitted. As such the total number of ways = (5x4x2)/(3x2x1) = 10

Regards

Teh
