$A,B,C,D,E,F,$ and $G$, to do (one at a time). However:

A disorganised mathematician is doing all his Christmas preparation in two days to make a party for his friends. He, being systematic, has made a list of seven activities:- $A$ (buying Christmas food and presents) must be done before $B$ (preparing food).
- $E$ (making math problems for his friends) must be done as one of the first four activities (because he thinks better in the morning).

For example, one valid way is $ABCEDFG$. In total, how many ways are there for him to do the activities?
