Since there are 6 students, and we need presentations about 3 continents
(Asia, Africa and South America) and a pair of students each to give these presentations.

For Asia, there would be \(6c2(15)\) ways of choosing the students
For Africa, there would be \(4c2(6)\) ways of choosing the students
For South America, there would be \(2c2(1)\) way of choosing the students

Total ways possible of choosing the students is 15*6*1 = 90 ways(Option E)
