Veg

combinations of 6 things taken 3 at a time

= 6!/[3!(6-3)! ] = 6*5*4/(3*2) = 20

Fruit

= 9!/[ 3! (9-3)! ] = 9*8*7*6*5*4/(6*5*4*3*2)

= 9*8*7/6

= 12*7 = 84

(2) 20+84 = 104

(3) 20 kinds of veg salad and 84 of fruit salad

for veg 1, 84 different fruits

for veg 2, 84 different fruits

etc

so 20* 84 = 1680
