**Ans 3**. The word SIGNATURE consists of nine letters comprising four vowels (A,E, I nd U) and five consonants (G,N,R,T and S). when the four vowels are considered as one letter, we have six letters which can be arranged in 6P6 ways,i.e. 6! ways.

Hence, required number of words = 6! x 4!

= 720 x 24 = 17280.
