Difficulty: 3 of 5 Latest: Elections in Graphistan Rating: 3.00
In this year's presidential election of Graphistan, 20 nominees compete for the position of head of state. It is your job to schedule a series of public debates between them on national television. There are some constraints you must consider:

1. We do not want it too crowdy, so at most 10 contenders may appear in the same TV show.

2. It is an accepted custom, that candidates shall not attack anyone who is absent. Therefore, ensure that every pair of candidates appears in at least one show together.

Questions:
a) How can you schedule the events with the minimum number of shows?

b) What if there are 22 candidates and the limit is raised to 11 candidates per show?
