    ESP randomness simulation (urgent help needed)

    Basically, the questions goes as follows:
    You want to test someone to see whether they have ESP or not. You get 10 volunteers to sign their names on cards, and then switch the cards up and give them to the testee. He then tries to match up the cards with the people. I need to simulate the test by using at least 20 trials and explaining my procedure.
    I just need to know how to go about the test using random numbers.
    Thanks!

    Perhaps numer the cards 1-10.

    Generate 10 random numbers, 1-10, without replacement. Perhaps you managed, 1, 7, 10, 2, 9, 8, 5, 3, 4, 6.

    Pick the cards out in the order of the number generation.

    Give them to the examined in that order.

    Start over from the top.
