**MathMate**, Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at 4:36pmPart A:

Assuming the ring is not symmetrical, i.e. it cannot be worn both ways, then there are 3! ways the stones can be arranged.

If the ring is symmetrical, divide by 2.

Part B: similar to A, replace 3 by 4.

Part C: Leave it to you as an exercise.
