After all games have been played, which of the following could NOT be the percent of games played that ended in a tie?

Out of the 7 matches displayed in the diagram 2 are ties (AC,ED).

Total matches to be played = 5C2 = 10

Remaining matches to be played= 10-7 =3

the maximum ties that can happen = 2+3 =5
minimum ties that can happen =2

So , percentage of minimum ties = (2/10) *100 =20%

Hence ,A is the answer as 10% is not possible.

Yes, but the key is too just take out the minimum percentage that is possible, which in this case is 20% and be done with it.

Total number of matches = 5C2= 10
From the figure, we can see that the minimum number of ties are 2.
So, option A (1/10*100= 10%) is ruled out for sure.

Hence, answer is A.

A. 10%
B. 20%
C. 30%
D. 40%
E. 50%


Total games possible between teams = 5C2 = 10
Total games played = 7
Total games already ended up in tie = 2
Total games left to be played = 3

So, Maximum games that can end in tie = 5
Minimum games that can end in tie = 2

So,Maxm percentage of game that can end in a tie = 50%
Minm percentage of game that can end in a tie = 20%

Hence option A is the answer.
