A.

Using the games played thus far, there are 2 games that ended in a tie. So far 7 games have been played and the games between between BE, BD and CE have not been played yet.
Total number of games that can be played are 10 (7+3 new games). So far there are 2 ties. Hence, 2/10=20% tie. As each of the new games (BD, BE and CE) are played it could result in a tie. So 3/10=30%, 4/10=40% and 5/10=50%.
