It is A! The total number of points distributed between the players is 30 since 15 games are played altogether. From the given information A gets 6 points, B gets 8, C gets 4, D and F -2 and E gets 4. The remaining 6 points have to be won by D so that it is at 3rd position and moves to the final round.

@Raja Metronetizen OK.... since A won 6 points,A must have won 3 games.And B won 8 points,hence it won against every team it played up till now.Then,as D won against A,E won against B and F won against C,we can find that B has won against A,C,D and F.So B's final score is 8.Then,as we can see,A lost 2 of 5 games.One of them is to D.As B only lost to E,B won against A,so A has a total of 6 points.From that ,we can see that C lost to A,B and F.Hence C's score is 4.Now D has to score 6 in total to go to the final.As D only won against A up till now,and lost to B and C,D must have won against E and F.If you can construct a table showing the result,it's not hard to find the final score.

Because E won against F E must have 2 more than F so the answer is A. Samuel Queen · 4 years, 2 months ago
