    For part c, the answer is 15, but it is not obtained through using 6C2; it just happens that for this case that the answer is equal to 6C2.

    There are 6C2 ways of picking the first pair, and then 4C2 ways of picking the second pair, and then 2C2 ways of picking the third pair. Note however that when multiplying these all together, the same teams in different orders, namely 3! times, will occur. So we actually get 6C2* 4C2 * 2C2 / 3! = 15
