**Answer the next 4 questions based on the information given below.**

Abra, Babra, Cabra, Dabra, Gabra and Kabra play a game where they pick up chits containing different numbers from a box. These numbers however have a specialty i.e., all of them are 4-digit numbers containing different permutations of the digits 6, 7, 8 and 9 each digit being distinct. Numbers once picked up cannot be picked up again. The table above shows details of some of the numbers picked up at the end of 3 rounds of picking. In the first round, all the 6 pick up a chit one-by-one. The same thing happens for the second and third round.
