E: Darise received a grade of 10 in three classes and Maya did not score higher than 8 in any class

And in the fourth one, they got equal grades. Then who got better overall grade?

If answer B does not include "or equal to", could it have been the right answer too?

Maya - 2, 8, 8, 8
Darise's - 2, 3, 3, 8

Darise's overall grades are higher in case
Maya - 2, 8, 8, 8
Darise's - 8, 10, 10, 10

E is not right.

Lets say M got 3 tens 10 10 10 but really sucks at another class and gets a 1

And the other student is not as bright in a few areas but is quite good in all areas 8 8 8 8 then we have a total of 31 and 32, with the steady and stable 8 winning.

C would be the answer assuming that they did not get the same grade in EVERY class.
