  1. they could wear:
    shirt 1 sock 1 short 1
    shirt 1 sock 2 short 2
    shirt 1 sock 3 short 3

    shirt 2 sock 1 short 1
    shirt 2 sock 2 short 2
    shirt 2 sock 3 short 3

    shirt 3 sock 1 short 1
    shirt 3 sock 2 short 2
    shirt 3 sock 3 short 3

    I have found a way of doing this.First I wrote shirt 1 at the start of the first three ways.then I wrote sock 1 and short 1 with it.next I wrote sock 2 and short 2 with it.finally I wrote sock 3 and short 3 with it. There i found all the different ways with shirt 1.

    next i did the same but with shirt 2 at the start.then I found all the ways.finally i did the same but with shirt 3 at the start.

    there I found out all the different ways.
