A)38 B)171 C)190 D)210 E)361
my answer B
here we go!
19*19=361
361-19=342 number of games wich teams played with each other (2 times with each) 342/2=171 number of games which play for 1 game with each other.

I would calculate this way- first Student will have chance to play 18 games (given the condn that one can have only one game with the other student), second will have 17 games, third will have 16 games and so on...
So all the # games would be sum of the series 1+2+ .....+18= (1+18)*18/2= 171 so B it is! Let me know if there's any disconnect! _________________
