+Queen has 5 letters out of which 2 are same (i.e. the letter E)

So basically you have to arrange 5 things out of which 2 are the same.

Lets first arrange this word alphabetically, EENQU

Words starting with E as first letter = 4!

Words starting with N as first letter, 4!/2!

Words starting with QE , 3!

Words starting with QN, 3!/2!

Next word would be QUEEN

Hence rank of the word QUEEN will be 4!+4!/2!+3!+ 3!/2!+1 = 46
