The total number of different ways in which the five movies can be arranged during the indicated time blocks equals to 4.

Work Step by Step

We know that the situation involves making choices with five time blocks. We use the fundamental counting principle to find the number of ways to schedule the appearances. Multiply the number of choices for each of the five-time blocks. That is, $2\times 1\times 2\times 1\times 1=4$ Hence, there are 4 different ways can the five movies be arranged during the indicated time blocks.
