Having a look at the first question suck up a lot of my time !
Also, all questions (1,3,5 and 6) are related to permutations and combinations.
So, I am solving the fifth one. Taking inspiration from this solution, solve the rest.
How many ways can a committee of 3 be selected from a club with 12 members?
this is a combination problem
involving "CHOOSING"
where order doesn't matter

the formula for choosing k objects from n objects is
$\displaystyle ^{n}{_{C_k}} = \frac{n!}{\left( k! \times (n-k)! \right) }$
where n! is called factorial n
& is $\displaystyle n \cdot (n-1) \times (n-2) \times... \times 1

thus number of ways = $\displaystyle ^{12}{_{C_{3}}} = \frac{12!}{( 3! \times 9!)}$

$\displaystyle = 12 \times 11 \times \frac{10}{(1 \times 2 \times 3)} = 220$
