The number of bus lines between a and b =4
The number of bus lines between b and c =3
The number of possible combinations between a and c going through b are 4 * 3 = 12.
if you're talking about round trip, he has 12 possible ways to get there and 12 possible ways to get back, so the total possible ways is 12 * 12 = 144.

nos of ways fromA to C via B is 4*3=12

Similarly no of ways from C to A via B =3*4=12.

So for round trip nos of ways =12*12=144

Hence the option C is correct.
