3. Just another thought.

N = number of students equally spaced around the circle and numbered sequentially.

The student number opposite a given student number is defined by Sopp = Sg +/- N/2 depending on whether the given student number is less/more tan N/2.
The student opposite student #1 = 1 + 18/2 = #10.
The student opposite student #5 = 5 + 18/2 = #14.
The student opposite student #18 is 18 -- 18/2 = 9.
