(A) Consider the problem of how to arrange a group of n people so each person can shake hands with every other person. How might you organize this process?

Did you track the completion of this task in any way to ensure that no pieces were left undone, much like an algorithm keeps placeholders to trace a way back from a recursive trajectory? If so, how did you do it? If not, why did you not?
