If the winning team margin was 14 and total points were 34 then 2 teams must have scored the balance points equally I.e. 20/2. So loosing team scored 10 and winning team 24. So option A

(C) 17
(D) 20
(E) 24

C+P = 34
C = P + 14 ( won by 14 points , taking a count of Panther too hence P )

P+14+P=34
2P = 34 - 14
2P = 20
P = 10
QA A !
