For questions $1$ and $2$, use Permutations Calculator and generate questions based on the word 'TREES'. You will get detailed answers.

(3) Fix one 'E' at the first position. Remaining $4$ letters can be arranged in $4!=24$ ways.
Required number of ways $=24$

(4) As obtained above, $24$ arrangements possible with first letter as 'E'.

Now fix one 'E' at the fist position and other 'E' at the second position. Remaining $3$ letters can be arranged in $3!=6$ ways.

Hence, required number of ways
$=24-6=18$

(5) Arrange the $3$ consonants in $3!=6$ ways. These three consonants can be separated by placing two 'E's between adjacent consonants.

Required number of ways $=6$
