This question is quite difficult , which can come in olympial or any other compitative exam.


1 Answer

  1. no of handshakes =nC2=n!/(n-2)!(2)!

    so n=no of handshakes =12
    here we used combinations because in permutations AB is different from BA but in combinations both are same.
    Note -: Since if two persons hand shake it means both shake their hands with each other.
    So here A shakes hand with B is same as B shakes hand with a.
