By what is also known as Titu's form of Cauchy-Schwarz we have
\(\frac{a^2}{c-1}+\frac{b^2}{d-1}+\frac{c^2}{e-1}+\frac{d^2}{a-1}+\frac{e^2}{b-1} \ge \dfrac {(\sum a)^2} {\sum a - 5} \ge 20\), since it comes to \((\sum a-10)^2 \ge 0\) . Equality occurs for \(a=b=c=d=e=2\)

Method 2:

We know that \((a-2)^2 \ge 0\) so \(a^2 \ge 4(a-1)\). Similarly we get \( \frac{a^2}{c-1}+\frac{b^2}{d-1}+\frac{c^2}{e-1}+\frac{d^2}{a-1}+\frac{e^2}{b-1} \ge \frac{4(a-1)}{c-1}+\frac{4(b-1)}{d-1}+\frac{4(c-1)}{e-1}+\frac{4(d-1)}{a-1}+\frac{4(e-1)}{b-1} \\ \ge 5\sqrt[5]{\frac{4(a-1)}{c-1}\cdot \frac{4(b-1)}{d-1}\cdot \frac{4(c-1)}{e-1}\cdot \frac{4(d-1)}{a-1}\cdot \frac{4(e-1)}{b-1} }= 20 . \)
