**PsyDAG**, Saturday, December 1, 2007 at 4:25pmWith 6 couples, there are 12 people. Considering that you don't want to shake hands with yourself or your spouse, you — or your spouse — could shake hands with 10 other people. The word, "could," implies potential, not actual activity. It could be that many of the others did not shake hands with all the potential persons.

Thus someone shakes 0 hands, someone 1, someone 2,...to someone 10, giving 11 different answers. However, I don't know how to determine which one is the wife.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
