    What is combination?

    A combination is indeed a mathematical method for determining the number of potential arrangements in a set of objects in which the order of a selection is irrelevant.
    You can choose the components in any order in combinations. Permutations and combinations are often mistaken.
    The formula for combination is;
    ⁿCₓ = n!/{x!(n-x)!}
    where, n is the total number of objects.
    x is the selected objects.
    Now, according to the question;
    The total number of shades available are 6.
    The number of selected shades are 2.
    Thus, the total combinations generated by this are-
    ⁶C₂ = 6!/{2!(6-2)!}
    ⁶C₂ = 15
    Therefore, the total combinations in which two pairs of the blue colour are selected from the 6 shades of blue is 15.
