Toolbox:
$^nC_r$ is maximum if $r=\large\frac{n}{2}$ or $r=\large\frac{n+1}{2}$
Let him invite $r$ friends at a time in each party.
Then the number of parties = $^{10}C_r$
This is maximum only if $r=5$
Out of these $ ^{10}C_5$ parties a particular person can be found in
$^9C_4 =126$ parties.
This is because out of any 5 friends 1 particular friend is included and the
remaining 4 friends are to be selected from remaining 9 friends.=$^9C_4$ (ways.)
