Team A, team B, team C, and team D take part in a tournament in which every team plays once with each of its opponents. 3 points are awarded for victory, 1 for a draw, and 0 for defeat. The scoring table currently is as follows:

team B 7 points

team C 4 points

team A 0 points

team D 0 points

How many games are yet to be played in the tournament?

a. 0

b. 1

c. 2

d. 3

e. Cannot be determined

What type of qs is this???

Well for 4 teams total of 6 matches will be played....viz:

AB, AC, AD, BC, BD, CD.....

every team would therefore play three games each with all other 3.....

Team B has 7 points = played all 3 games = 2 win + 1 draw

Team c has 4 points = atleast 1 win and 1 draw....(obviously since no other team than B has 1 point means that C had a drawn match with B)...

Moreover team B has won 2 games that means it has played with D and A...coz the match with C ended with draw...

Team C has also played a game either with D or A....as can be seen from a win to its name....

So we have the played games as under...

BC, BD, BA, C (D/A)......so that means 2 games are still left to be played....

between AD and C(D/A)

So answer must be C (2)....

Hope this helps !!!
