Looks like your HW, with the last sentence and all. Why don't you try it yourself, give it some effort, and when you cannot do it, can ask for help. and put what you've tried.

For the second part, there are 18 people, and the 2 people have to be different, so its just 18 * 17 divided by 2 which is 153 ways
