2/3 rd of games = 17+3=20
total games = 20 *(3/2) =30

30*3/4 = 90/4= 22.5.. there can't be .5 games this should be 23..

What is OA?

You are looking for the remaining games so:

7 total games lost - 3 games already lost = able to lose 4 of the remaining games choice D

I think the question should say that there are no draws.

not necessarily. the question asks how many the team can loose and still have 3/4 wins. That implies maximum losses and still have 3/4 wins.
