In the diagram above, points A, B, C, D, and E represent the five teams in a certain league in which each team must play each of the other teams exactly once. The segments connecting pairs of points indicate that the two corresponding teams have already played their game. The arrows on the segments point to the teams that lost; the lack of an arrow on a segment indicates that the game ended in a tie. After all games have been played, which of the following could NOT be the percent of games played that ended in a tie?

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

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.
