Correct logic of permuting 5 men and 5 women to find probability of different highest women rank
The problem reads like this: Problem Five men and $5$ women are ranked according to their scores on an examination. Assume that no two scores are alike and all $10!$ possible rankings are equally likely. Let $X$ denote the highest ranking achieved by a woman. (For instance, $X = 1$ if the top-ranked person is female.) Find $P(X = i),i = 1, 2, 3, . . ., 8, 9, 10$. Solution given was: $P(X=1)= \frac{5}{10}= \frac{1}{2}$ because there are 5 women and total of 10 to choose from $P(X=2)=\frac{5}{10}\times \frac{5}{9}=\frac{5}{18}$ because for rank1 thereare 5 men and total of 10 to choose from, for rank 2 (we want awoman) we still have 5 women but only a total of 9 to choosefrom. $P(X=3)=\frac{5}{10}\times \frac{4}{9}\times \frac{5}{8}=\frac{5}{36}$ $P(X=4)=\frac{5}{10}\times \frac{4}{9}\times \frac{3}{8}\times \frac{5}{7}=\frac{10}{168}$ $P(X=5)=\frac{5}{10}\times \frac{4}{9}\times \frac{3}{8}\times \frac{2}{7}\times \frac{5}{6}=\frac{5}{252}$ $P(X=6)=\frac{5}{10}\times \frac{4}{9}\times \frac{3}{8}\times \frac{2}{7}\times \frac{1}{6}\times \frac{5}{5}=\frac{1}{252}$ My solution was $P(X=1)=\frac{5\times 9!}{10!}=\frac{1}{2}$ because there are five women to occupy 1st rank and then there remained 9 which can permute in $9!$ ways. There are total $10!$ ways to permute $10$ people $P(X=2)=\frac{5\times \binom{5}{4}\times 8!}{10!}=\frac{5}{18}$ because there are five women to occupy 2st rank. The 1st rank will be of a man. So we have to select $4$ out of $5$ men which will be ranked after $2$nd rank. These four men and remaining 4 women can be permuted in $8!$ ways. $P(X=3)=\frac{5\times \binom{5}{3}\times 7!}{10!}=\frac{5}{72}$ $P(X=4)=\frac{5\times \binom{5}{2}\times 6!}{10!}=\frac{5}{504}$ $P(X=5)=\frac{5\times \binom{5}{1}\times 5!}{10!}=\frac{5}{6048}$ $P(X=6)=\frac{5\times \binom{5}{0}\times 4!}{10!}=\frac{1}{30240}$ Doubts Where my logic went wrong? When I compared the two approach, I realized that the books solution is permuting ranks higher than the highest ranked girl, while my solution is permuting ranks lower than the highest ranked girl. So I was guessing what makes book solution not permute lower ranks and my solution not permuting higher ranks. Shouldn't we permute on both sides of highest ranked girl?

In conclusion, let me entreat you to be what this world now most needs--MEN and WOMEN. The world is now burdened with "gentlemen and ladies;" but it is perishing for the want of MEN and WOMEN. The world needs men and women that are true to themselves, true to each other, and true to God--men and women who know what manliness is, and what womanly virtues are; who delight in the real, and scorn the counterfeit; who have the courage to do right because it is right; who would rather stand alone on the side of truth, than with the world on the side of error; who are governed by high and holy principle, not by selfish policy. We need men and women that will create a healthier public sentiment, rather than to float on that which exists; who will frown out of countenance the fraud, dishonesty and meanness that now lifts high its head in society; who will not live in fine palaces, drive fast horses, and occupy the first pews in the sanctuary, at ten cents on the dollar. The world needs men and women who have hearts and consciences, as well as brains; who realize that they have a soul as well as a body; who live for eternity rather than for time.
'That is easily said. But it was on that principle that Philip burned the Jews, and they did not think it was nonsense. The beetles don't think it funny to be pulled to pieces, either. I don't. A large class of us don't, and yet you women have been doing it ever since Eve made a fool and a sinner of the only man who happened to be in the world just then. He was her husband, which was an excuse, but that's of no consequence to the argument.'
