5 persons can occupy 5 positions - with out any restrictions.

Assuming that it is a linear queue and not circular queue.

Any of the 5 children can occupy the  1st position, any of the remaining 4 persons can occupy the second,  any of the remaining 3 persons can occupy the third position  and so on...
