Team A and team B competed in 8 distinct consecutive events. The team winning the nth event was given n points, there were no other teams competing, and there were no ties in any event. Did team A receive more points than team B?
(1) Team A won the seventh and eighth events and at least one other event.
(2) Team B won the third, fourth, and fifth events.
I - A has got 15+x points and B has got 21-x points.
A>B if x = 6 or 5 or 4 with one or more wins.
A=B if x = 3 with one or more wins.
A<B if x = 2 or 1 with one win.
Insufficient.
I - A has got 15+x points and B has got 21-x points. A>B if x = 6 or 5 or 4 with one or more wins. A=B if x = 3 with one or more wins. A<B if x = 2 or 1 with one win. Insufficient.
I think the way B is worded is tricky. B only tells us that team B won those 3 events. This means that we know nothing about other events. If such is the case, then E should be the answer. _________________
Paul, I agree that the answer shd be B oon this one. you are thinking too much into the question. There are only two runners and each could win a number of points equal to the nth event.
for the 8 games, the total that both ca win is
1 + 2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 36
if II says that gives the number of points the other won, we can deduce the number of the other from that.
I tend to agree with Paul. The second condition tells us only the results of third, fourth and fifth events. (Like B won these events). We cannot make an assumption that the other events were all won by A.
Hence the answer should be E

If We know how many points the other team got. befcause there are only two teams and there are no draws, can't we deduce how many points the other team got. I think we shd be. may be i am missing something
From 1)
If team A won game 7,8 and say game 1, then A would have 16 points
This leaves team B with a win at games 2,3,4,5,6 giving them a total of 20 points
However, if Team A won game 6,7,8 = 21 points
Then Team B will have 1,2,3,4,5 = 15 points
So 1) is not sufficient.
From 2) If Team B won game 3,4,5 -> 12 points
Then Team A would have 1+2+6+7+8 -> 24 points
