    Answer: D. 5040

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given : The total number of books = 10

    The number of books required by Clarissa = 4

    Now , when we select r things from n things and order in which they are chosen matters then we use permutations to calculate the number of  different lists are formed to choose them.

    The number of permutations of n things taking r at a time is given by :-

    ^nP_r=\dfrac{n!}{(n-r)!}

    For r= 4  and n= 10 , we have

    ^{10}P_{4}=\dfrac{10!}{(10-4)!}\\\\=\dfrac{10\times9\times8\times7\times6!}{6!}=10\times9\times8\times7=5040

    Hence, the number of different lists are possible = 5040

    Therefore , the correct answer = D. 5040
